Strawberries take top crop in San Luis Obispo County

Strawberries are gaining on wine grapes in one part of the state.

The San Luis Obispo County Crop Report for 2011 shows strawberries eclipsed wine grapes as the county's top crop. That was the first time that's ever happened. Some thought that was going to be an exception since a severe frost reduced wine grape production that year. However, the crop report for 2012 shows strawberries are still ahead of wine grapes.
