WILLOUGHBY, Ohio (AP) — Ohio's maple syrup experts are concerned that above-average temperatures and the delay in seasonal weather could result in statewide production that would be lower than the 100,000 gallons or more reported each of the past two years.
The Willoughby News-Herald (http://bit.ly/Vi1oOb reports that experts in the field are concerned that this year's total could mirror the 65,000 gallons produced in 2010. Production statewide rose to 125,000 gallons in 2011 and reached 100,000 gallons last year.
An agent with Ohio State University's Geauga (jee-AW'-guh) County Extension Service says more production might not occur until well into March. But he doesn't expect lower production to result in higher costs for syrup in the state. He says about half of what is sold in Ohio is imported from New England and other areas.
