Michigan apples: Bumper crop should mean lower prices
September 6, 2013 (CHICAGO) (WLS) -- Despite a warm March and spring freezes, many Michigan apple farms are seeing bumper crops.
Michigan's Apple Committee estimates about 30 million bushels for the 2013 harvest compared to just 3 million in 2012, when drought wiped out much of the crop.
Michigan is the third largest apple producer in the country.
The good crop should mean lower prices.
