California 2019: Crop situation as of 10 Aug., projection to 17 Aug.

13/08/2019 - François-Xavier Branthôme - 2019 Season
For the sixth week of harvest (ending August 10rd) PTAB estimates are 887,458 short tons (sT) (805,013 metric tonnes (mT)) to be delivered. This amount is still one-third lower than the average quantity processed during past three seasons at this time (4.431 million sT) and brings the provisional total up to 2,962,985 sT (or 2,687,724 mT).
Another 991,116 sT (899,041 mT) are estimated to be harvested during the week 33 (ending August 17th). If this holds, the provisional total is expected to reach 3,954,101 sT, (or 3,586,765 mT) and the 2019 crop will continue to be the fewest since 2001 for the same time period.

The 2019 California Organic processing tomato deliveries have dropped with 36,602 sT (33,200 mT) harvested for week ending August 3, 2019. This bring the total harvested up to 208,169 sT (188,830 mT). As shown in the chart below, the year to date organic harvest is the lowest since 2013.

According to the figures available, the current harvest path is 1.582 million sT (1.435 million mT) behind the average of the quantities harvested at the same date (end of week 33) in the past three years. Quantities being harvested represent about 32.7% of the official target of the season (12.1 million sT, or 10.976 million mT). However, the latest estimate of WPTC for the California crop is 11.5 million sT (10.432 million mT); USDA will release a revised estimate at the end of August which will give a better idea on the 2019 crop.
