Grape and nut farmers enjoy hot weather
FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- Farmers in the Valley are welcoming the summer-like temperatures that are sticking around this fall.
Ag officials say the heat helped dry raisins on the vine and as they lay in vineyards on racks and tarps. The heat did not cause any sunburn to grapes and other fruit.
The dry weather also benefits nut growers as they harvest their crops, a process that involves shaking the trees and then collecting the nuts from the orchard floor.
