Freeze Warning for Farmers

February 4th, 2009 by flanews

Farmers across the state are preparing for tonights freezing temperature.

Temperatures will dip into the teens in many parts of the state tonight. Floridas Department of Agriculture is extending its temporary ban on truck weight, length, and height restrictions so farmers can harvest more of their crops. Department spokesman Terry McElroy said farmers are working overtime to save their fruits and vegetables.

The key is to harvest what you can and get it out of harms way and take those precautions and do what you can to protect your crops. Beyond that, were just waiting to see what kind of fury Mother Natures going to unleash, said McElroy.

The ban on trucking restrictions will be in place until February 11th. Governor Charlie Crist is expected to extend the last month emergency declaration later today.
