With a per-pound price of 90 cents, raisin growers are none too happy about their haul for 2017.
The culprit: weather. Light grape production compounded by two large-scale storms during the year left raisin farmers with small stashes to sell to processors.
Raisin Bargaining Association president Dwayne Cardoza chalked it up to an off-year for farmers.
“After you come off an extreme drought like we did then we have a big rain and stuff, we didn’t anticipate having a short crop,” Cardoza told ABC30.
