Quebec has bumper syrup crop

Quebec producers harvested a bumper crop of maple syrup this spring, even though production per tap was less than last year.

Producers took advantage of the marketing board’s relaxations and installed more taps this season.

Despite a late start, the harvest was more than 159 million pounds of syrup.

That's 41 million pounds more than last year and more than the 152.2 million pounds in 2017.
