No widespread freeze damage expected from morning frost

by

COLDWATER, MI (WTVB) - Agriculture officials in Southern Michigan were hoping that this morning’s freeze won’t have an adverse effect on crops, especially apples. The official low temperature in Coldwater was 29 degrees. Most of the state’s fruit crops were destroyed last year due to an early thaw followed by a late freeze, but hopes were that this year’s wet, cool spring could lead to a bumper harvest.

Mark Longstroth, small fruit educator of the MSU Extension Office in Paw Paw, was confident that this freeze won’t have long-lasting effects. He said he expects there to be some damage, but nothing anywhere near the scale of loss like last year from the big freeze at the end of April that nearly finished off all the tree fruit crops in Michigan. Forecasters don’t believe at this point that another freeze or frost could crop up again this spring
