US agriculture officials to survey state maple production

Posted:
ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - Federal agriculture researchers will again be doing a census of New York maple syrup production in April and May.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture says the state ranked second to Vermont in last year's survey of producers in 10 states.

Inspectors will collect information about the number of taps, yield, prices and the overall value of the maple products from New York.

The results will be released in June.
