Tomato rot still worries Solano County farmers after September rains

The heavy showers seen across the Sacramento region over the past several days are local tomato growers. There has simply been too much rain, which has led farms to pause the harvesting of tomatoes for several days due to muddy conditions.  

As warmer temperatures are expected over the weekend, many farmers are concerned about their tomatoes rotting with the weather shift.

"It'll impact it when it gets hot later on, and it starts molding. [It] Makes for hard conditions to harvest it," said one grower. "It's just part of farming, you know? You can't harvest them all because they go bad, but you get what you can."

Farmers are hoping for some wind over the next few days to help dry out the crops before things start to warm up again.
