Pumpkin Harvest Down In Illinois

Morton, IL (KTRS)  A large canned pumpkin manufacturer says yields in Illinois appear to be less than anticipated this year.

Roz O’Hearn, the corporate and brand affairs director for Libby’s, says that the yield could be off by as much as a third this year.

O’Hearn also says weather could further reduce yields. The harvest is underway now through October or early November. However, O’Hearn says the company thinks it will have enough pumpkin to meet fall holiday demand.

Libby grows most of its pumpkins in central Illinois and 90 percent of the pumpkins grown in the U.S. are raised within a 90-mile radius of Peoria.
