05/09/2019 - François-Xavier Branthôme - 2019 Season
For the ninth week of harvest (ending August 31st) PTAB estimates are 1,056,271 short tons (sT) (958,143 metric tonnes (mT)) to be delivered. Provisional total (6,116,974 sT, or 5,548,707 mT) is still 19% lower than the average quantity processed during past three seasons at this time (7,626 million sT). 
Another 1,047,015 sT (949,747 mT) are estimated to be harvested during the week 36 (ending September 7th). If achieved, this would be the fourth week of over 1,000,000 sT harvested this pack year (vs seven weeks of 1,000,000 plus short tons harvested for the same time period in 2018).
If this holds, the provisional total is expected to reach 7,163,989 sT, (or 6,498,454 mT).

The 2019 California Organic processing tomato deliveries has significantly increased with 33,627 sT (30,503 mT) harvested for week ending August 24, 2019. This brings the total harvested up to 270,112 sT (245,019 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 1.469 million sT (1.333 million mT) behind the average of the quantities harvested at the same date (end of week 36) in the past three years. Quantities being harvested represent more than 62% of the revised official target of the season (11.5 million sT or 10.432 million mT); previous objective for California crop was (12.1 million sT, or 10.976 million mT).
