2015 Crop reports are coming in across the state. Some counties showed an increase but a few of the top counties showed a significant decrease.

Counties around the state are presenting their annual crop reports. For Tulare County, which has held the number one spot in the nation for the past two years, the numbers were down by 13.7 percent for total gross production. That amounts to just over a billion dollars. However, Tulare County remains the top producing county in the nation with a total crop value of $6.9 billion. It is also the top dairy county in the nation, with the 2015 milk production of $1.7 billion.

Fresno County also saw a decrease in crop production. It’s numbers were down 6.55 percent, to a gross production value of $6.6 billion. Almonds continue to be the top commodity in Fresno County, with more than 18 percent of the crop value being in almonds.

Monterey County saw an increase in production value of 7.75 percent, or $348 million over the previous years. Total production value for Monterey County in 2015 was $4.84 billion.

  1. First off I would like to say fantastic blog!
    I had a quick question that I’d like to ask if you do not mind.
    I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your head before writing.
    I’ve had trouble clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out
    there. I truly do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually
    lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or hints?

    Kudos!

  2. Today, while I was at work, my cousin stole my apple ipad and tested to see
    if it can survive a 25 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad
    is now destroyed and she has 83 views. I know this is completely off topic but I had to
    share it with someone!
