Iowa Secretary of Agriculture Bill Northey says strawberry season will be getting underway soon; he says many growers in Iowa are expecting a bumper crop.
“The mild winter and wet spring have created a nearly ideal growing situation for fruits and vegetables in Iowa and strawberries are leading the way.  Growers across the state are reporting tons of blooms,” Northey said.
Strawberry harvest season lasts about 3 weeks.
