New York state’s maple-syrup production jumped by 7.5 percent this year to a record 760,000 gallons from 707,000 gallons last year, according to a new report from the USDA National Agricultural Statistics Service.

New York maintained its standing as the second-leading producer of maple syrup in the U.S., behind only Vermont, which produced 1.98 million gallons in 2017, down less than 1 percent from last year.

Warmer-than-normal temperatures allowed for an extended season, which helped boost production. The maple-syrup season in the U.S. averaged 37 days, four days longer than in 2016, according to the USDA. National maple-syrup production totaled 4.27 million gallons this season, up 1.5 percent from last year.
