The Tulare County 2012 Crop Report is out, and it shows good and not-so-good news for pomegranate growers in the county.

Pomegranates are becoming more and more popular around the state, but remain a smaller crop for most counties. Tulare County Agriculture Commissioner Marilyn Kinoshita presented the crop report to the Board of Supervisor earlier this week.

Overall, the county had another record-breaking year, with a total production of $6,210,693,000. It is California’s second top ag producing county, behind Fresno.
