Producción 2011 en California caería 3% respecto del año pasado
HE CALIFORNIA cling stone peach harvest is now underway and early estimates suggest that total production will decline by around 3% in 2011, compared with the previous season. Growers have agreed increased base prices for fruits with processors but unseasonable rainfall at the end of June seems to have had an impact on the quality of early season deliveries.
According to a block-by-block forecast by the California League of Food Processors (CLFP), the US state will produce a crop of 417 067 short tons in 2011, compared with 430 072 tons in 2010. This volume is in line with the California Ag Statistics Service forecast of 430 000 tons, released in early June this year (FOODNEWS 3 June).
