Near-record apple harvest projected

Tuesday, August 26, 2014 - Updated: 6:35 AM

LANSING, Mich. (AP) -- A new report says Michigan's apple crop should be among its best ever.

The U.S. Apple Association Outlook Conference in Chicago on Friday forecasts that Michigan will have a 2014 harvest of about 29 million bushels. That's close to the 30 million bushel record set in 2013.

Michigan Apple Committee Executive Director Diane Smith says it's great to have strong back-to-back harvests after a number of ups-and-downs over the years.

Smith tells the Detroit Free Press (http://on.freep.com/1zoGhZG ) it also looks the quality of this year's Michigan apple crop will be very good as well.

Michigan is among the nation's leading apple growers, but Washington dominates. Michigan and New York are vying for the second spot, and their combined harvest is likely to be about half Washington's alone.
