This article reports that a succession of hurricanes and tropical storms in the year 2004 in the Southeast regions of the U.S. caused abrupt and significant increases in the fall prices of some fruits and vegetables. Growers, however, should not take this as a sign to boost acreage. The increases in the fall prices of some fruits and vegetables were due simply to the shortages caused by the hurricanes and tropical storms that affected Georgia and other parts of the Southeast, said Greg Fonsah, University of Georgia Extension economist.
