HOBE SOUND, Fla. - Citrus farmers throughout South Florida are hoping their crops don't endure any permanent damage from the cold.
Many farmers along the Treasure Coast said Wednesday morning's cold snap shouldn't have too much of a negative effect on their crops. But some are taking precautions anyway -- just to be on the safe side.
Many growers have been watering the crops extra to create an insulation from the cold. Farmers say that essentially seals the soil and locks in heat.
Farmers certainly will be keeping busy Wednesday, making sure their plants made it through okay.
