South Carolina farmers suffer from cold

Posted: Updated:

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - The cold snap has damaged crops for some South Carolina farmers.

State Agriculture Commissioner Hugh Weathers says it will take about a week to determine how much damage has occurred.

Weathers says there may not be much effect on prices because the cold snap did not last very long. But he says another cold snap could raise prices for local crops.

Clayton Rawl Farms in Lexington was able to cover some of their greens to protect them from the weather, but they could not cover everything. Workers at the farm say their greens, onions and cabbage were damaged.

Montez Hilliard of Hilliard Farms in Santee says he faces a major loss. He says the collard green crop suffered heavy damage.
