Cool, wet spring slows crops

As the calendar flips to June, it comes as no surprise to Oregonians that spring 2017 has generally been cooler and wetter than average. Up until the last couple of weeks, there had only been eight days this spring in which the statewide temperature topped 64 degrees. The combination of cool temperatures and rainy weather delayed many farmers around Oregon from preparing the fields and planting while pushing back the early growth and development of crops.
