FRESNO, Calif.

Farmers sold turkeys at favorable prices this year. The California Poultry Federation says there should be plenty of turkey and left-overs for thanksgiving. But the federation says shoppers probably won't notice much difference in the retail price of their thanksgiving bird. Grocery stores typically run specials on turkey before the holiday.

A strong export market could attract more California farmers to plant pecans.

The California Farm Bureau tells us china buys most of the pecans grown in the state. They say the Chinese would buy more if they could find them.

Pecans are a small crop in California. The Central Valley produces about 4 million pounds

Farmers say they expect to plant more pecans, but it takes seven to 10 years for new trees to come into production.
