USDA predicts high apple yield for Michigan

Here is some good news for apple lovers! The USDA expects Michigan farmers to produce 78-percent more apples this year than they did in 2010.

Peaches and grapes are also projected to deliver heavy yields.

Last year, frost destroyed young buds and hurt crops across the state.

This year, the cold and rainy spring put farmers behind schedule, but weather during apple budding was warmer.
