Avocado Survey

Avocado Commission Seeks Grower Input, Deadline April 30th

The California Avocado Commission (CAC) is conducting its annual grower crop estimate survey. It is important that California avocado growers complete the survey in order to fine-tune the estimate and better predict the harvest flow to market.

Pre-season estimates for 2016 indicate a crop volume of approximately 392 million pounds. The survey is an important tool in helping CAC understand the industry’s overall productivity and grower intentions in light of industry variables such as water pricing, availability and global market competition.

Surveys were mailed to all producers on record in April. The deadline for completing the survey is tomorrow, April 30, 2016.

If you need assistance estimating your avocado crop, visit CAC’s avocado crop estimation instructions or utilize the Avocadosource.com avocado crop estimating calculator. The “Crop Estimating Calculator” is listed under “Tools.”

Growers may submit their survey responses online at the California avocado growers website. They may also complete the postage-paid survey they received and return by mail. Simply fold the form so that BUSINESS REPLY MAIL shows on the front. The form also may be faxed to 619.445.3346.

If you did not receive a crop estimate survey, or have questions regarding the form, please contact April Aymami at aaymami@avocado.org or 949.341.1955.
