10/09/2019 - François-Xavier Branthôme - 2019 Season
For the tenth week of harvest (ending September 7th) PTAB estimates are 1,024,289 short tons (sT) (929,133 metric tonnes (mT)) to be delivered. Provisional total (7,139,051 sT, or 6,475,833 mT) is still 18% lower than the average quantity processed during past three seasons at this time (8,633 million sT). 
Another 989,926 sT (897,962 mT) are estimated to be harvested during the week 37 (ending September 14th) which signals the beginning of a weekly decline of deliveries through the balance of the season ending in late October.
If this holds, the provisional total is expected to reach 8,128,977 sT, (or 7,373,795 mT).

The 2019 California Organic processing tomato deliveries has slightly increased with 33,939 sT (30,786 mT) harvested for week ending August 31, 2019. This brings the total harvested up to 304,051 sT (275,805 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 1.485 million sT (1.347 million mT) behind the average of the quantities harvested at the same date (end of week 37) in the past three years. Quantities being harvested represent almost 71% 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).
