Cold Winter Hits Ohio Fruit and Vegetable Farmers Hard
OSU Extension Agent Gary Gao said sub-zero temperatures have caused Ohio wine-grape and blackberry growers to lose much of this year’s crop.
Jeni Blackburn of Fresh Harvest Farm in Richwood says she lost 75 Percent of her aquaponic salad greens in January. Now Blackburn is running out of propane to keep the greenhouse warm.
They can’t guarantee that they can fill it.
“They’re saying the best they can do is 60 percent capacity. But with these cold temperatures that we’ve been having we’re going through more propane faster than normal,” Blackburn said.
Propane prices have jumped more than a dollar a gallon since she last purchased it, Blackburn said.
The value of the crops lost to the cold weather has yet to be determined.
