MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) -- Vermont maple officials say this should be a great week for syrup producers.

After a slow start with cold weather earlier this month, the sap is flowing again in some areas.

Henry Marckres a maple specialist with the Vermont Agency of Agriculture, said Wednesday that producers have taken in about one-half to two-thirds of a crop in the southern and western part of the state while the season is just getting under way in some spots in the north and east.

With temperatures rising above freezing during the day, followed by cool nights, Marckres says this should be a great week.
