Growers have lost their crops to late freezes in May and high winds and hailstorms in July.
Jennifer Montgomery, executive director of the Nebraska Winery and Grape Growers Association, says growers typically face at least one serve weather event each year. This year, growers reported at least four distinct weather events that damaged crops throughout the state.
One grower in Gibbon says he’ll only be able to harvest 10 percent of his grape crop this year.
