Sunshine, warmth wanted by apple growers

They are a little better off than most farmers who have been flooded out of some of their fields this spring, but apple growers in Door and Kewaunee Counties would not mind a little sunshine and warmth either. Bill Roethle of Hillside Apples in Casco has been able to get out to his trees to do the necessary work needed to prevent his crop from diseases. He says the wet, cool weather makes it easier for trees to get infected by diseases like apple scab, which severely limited his harvest in 2017.

Despite the weather, Roethle says the trees look to be in great shape and expects another strong harvest this year.
