New Zealand vegetable prices to rise due to humidity
The humidity had the biggest impact on green leafy vegetables, which are particularly sensitive to high levels of moisture in the air. Comparing the situation to a flood or drought, there does not seem to be much the growers can do when weather conditions aren't favourable to the crops being grown.
According to nzherald.co.nz, the last couple of days the humidity has fallen, creating improved conditions for growing. However, it could be another couple of weeks before everything comes right. Earlier this year, the MetService attributed the high humidity to a strong north-easterly flow that is bringing warm air from the tropics.
