LANSING, Mich. (AP) -- Gov. Rick Snyder has declared March "Michigan Maple Syrup Month" in honor of the industry's contribution to the state economy.

According to the state, Michigan ranks seventh in the U.S. with an average yearly maple syrup production of about 100,000 gallons.

The season starts in February in the southern counties of the Lower Peninsula and runs into April in the Upper Peninsula.

State Department of Agriculture Director Jamie Clover Adams says "Michigan Maple Syrup Month is a special time to acknowledge and recognize" the state's "vast, integrated network of" maple syrup "family farmers, processors, wholesalers and retailers."
