North Carolina Strawberry Growers Be Wary of Weekend Weather

N.C. State Extension recommends strawberry producers to secure their row covers to protect against high wind speeds and to implement cooling measures against warmer temperatures now and into the weekend.

Increasing temperatures are expected to be 10 to 20 degrees above normal, especially in the mid-Atlantic area. This will undoubtedly speed up the development of buds and blooms this weekend.

High winds with 20 mph to 30 mph wind gusts are in the region today and will stay that way until Saturday.
