Local strawberry farmers tell us they could be headed toward record production this year.
Statewide, volume is already up over last year, and strawberry acreage has also increased about three percent.
Here on the Central Coast, Darren Gee of Santa Maria tells us his crops are doing really well. He just hopes the "country can eat all of the strawberries being produced!" He said the state has produced approximately four million more trays of strawberries than this time last year.
Gee tells us the weather has been very cooperative and a cold winter helped to harden off the plants.
