Local Citrus Grower Hopeful for More Rain
MCALLEN – Though the Rio Grande Valley has seen plenty of rain in the last couple of days, a local citrus grower is hopeful for even more.
McAllen grower Fred Karle says this amount of rain is not enough to make his crop a success.
He explains citrus crops need more rain than other crops.
“Citrus needs 60 inches of water a year,” he says.
KRGV’s Frank McCaffrey spoke with Karle about how the current weather conditions could affect his crops.
