Maple syrup producers hope for colder weather

Apr 4, 2009

Article Times and Transcript - April 4, 2009

T&T staff Yvon Gauvin Headline “Maple syrup producers hope for colder weather”

“David Briggs of Rocky Mountain Maples said the temperature during the day has been good but the nights need to be colder, ideally at -10C (50F) to really get the sap flowing. Still, the sap is moving and hopefully the weather will co-operate over the next few weeks, he said. The window of opportunity for maple production is small, only about four weeks in the spring, and a difference of one degree can be significant, he explained.”
