tomatoesIt's shaping up to be a record year for California's processing
tomato contracted production with a forecast of 13.5 million tons, 13
percent above the previous record year of 1990. 

Planted and harvest acres are forecast at 308,000 and 307,000, respectively,
according to statistics from the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Acreage
drifted from areas where there wasn't adequate water supplies, with acreage
up significantly in Kern and San Joaquin counties.

Fresno County  still leads the state with the most 2009 contracted
production with 102,000 acres. San Joaquin County is second with 44,000
acres and Yolo County rounds out the top-3 with 34,000 acres.
