CALIFORNIA (CBS) – Experts say weather could be to blame for the lowest-yielding California olive crop in recent memory.
First, above-average temperatures last February confused the crop, then frost destroyed many of the olive plants.
In 2017, California farmers turned out about 5 million gallons. This year they’re down to three-and-a-half.
That could mean higher olive oil prices on the way.
