Peaches are no longer king in Georgia

Georgia is known for peaches. There's even a picture of peach on its license plate. But beginning in 2005 and continuing every year since, Georgia farmers have made more money from blueberries than peaches. That may come to an end this year, though, as one farmer lost over half of his blueberry crop due to excess rain in July.

One story discussing this is "Blueberry tops peach as Georgia’s top fruit crop" from the Atlanta Business Chronicle. The story about the farmer with rain problems is from News Channel 6.
