Chile pepper season is starting in southern Colorado, but there are concerns about season ahead

Although the chile pepper season is starting in Pueblo County, one farmer says there are going to be challenges this season. As of mid-March, Colorado's snowpack was on pace to break records, with much of the state seeing above-normal snowpack. The Arkansas Basin, however, has seen the lowest snowpack all season.

Dalton Milberger says more water will be budgeted toward its popular crops like peppers and sweet corn instead of alfalfa and pinto beans. He also says if the conditions stay the course pepper season could be shorter this year.
