Fewer acres-more processing tomatoes forecast in 2019

California is a great place for growing food.  As Guv Brown and the Democrats limit water for food, farmers have learned to maximize crops.

“It is a familiar pattern. San Joaquin Valley farmers are expected plant fewer acres of processing tomatoes in 2019 according to a new USDA report.

But the tonnage of  tomatoes is expected rise to 12.1 million – a 2.5 percent increase over last year. Farmers are expecting a yield of 51.5 tons per acre in 2019, the same number as 2018.

The industry average yield has more than doubled in the past few decades. It was under 20 tons per acre in the mid 60s and in the 30s as recently as 2006. In 2017 the yield come in at 44.5 tons an acre.

Producing more than 90 percent of the nation’s processed tomatoes and nearly half the world’s total processed tomato tonnage,”

Democrats have tried hard to kill California agriculture—and the farmers fight back.  Yet, as the recent election showed—farmers and workers in the Central Valley are prepared to kill their jobs and industry by voting for Democrats to control Sacramento and Washington.  They must hate themselves, their families and community by voting for officials that want to destroy them.  Sick.
