The cool spring weather has Oregon farmers worried about their crops. Bruce Pokarney, with the Oregon Department of Agriculture says some strawberry fields are still green. Wheat farmers in the Willamette Valley are dealing with "stripe rust" caused by the wet weather, which can reduce crop yield. Pokarney says if warm weather arrives, there's still time for crops to turn around in time for harvest. But farmers are starting to think it's not going to be a banner year.
