A study done by the Georgia Fruit and Vegetable Growers Association says the state's losses come from labor shortages.

Here's a breakdown of some of the losses -- blueberries totaled 29 million, bell peppers 15 million and nearly 2 million dollars was lost in squash.

Farmers are looking to use other resources to fill the gap in a labor shortage.
