Strawberry growers in California battle crop disease
FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- Some strawberry growers in California are battling a crop disease that is linked to last year's "white fly" infestation that can lead to crop dieback.
For now, the areas most affected are in Santa Maria Valley, south of San Luis Obispo.
Ag officials say they're currently working to develop a winter management plan to deal with the flies. It's unclear how much money growers have lost so far as a result of the infestation.
