California tomato production, prices up

Monday, June 25, 2012

Growers of Californian tomatoes for processing may be in for a good harvest season.

Farmers say they're expecting an increase in both production and price per-ton this year. On top of that, crops in other parts of the world are not looking so good -- setting up some good export opportunities for California.

Tomato growers say they expect to earn $69 per ton of processing tomatoes this year. That's one dollar more than a year ago.
