For the tenth week of harvest (ending September 5) PTAB estimates that 1,015,149 short tons (sT) (920,842 metric tonnes (mT)) were delivered. Provisional total (7,108,116 sT or 6,447,772 mT) is 9% lower than the average quantity processed during past three seasons at this time (7.82 million sT or 7.09 million mT).
For week 11 (ending September 12), California is projected to have its fourth million-ton week with an estimate of 1,014,434 short tons (920,193 mT). If achieved, this would bring the provisional total up to 8,122,550 sT, or 7,367,965 mT).
According to the PTAB, solids as of September 5 were about 0.14 higher than in the same period in 2019, averaging 5.33 versus 5.19 last year.

The 2020 California Organic processing tomato deliveries for the week ending 29 August were 33,757 sT (30,621 mT) bringing the provisional total to 440,609 sT (or 399,676 mT). Processed quantities in week 9 make it the third largest week in the history of organic processing tomato in California at this date. At this time, organic quantities account for less than 6% of total harvested quantity.

According to the figures available, the current harvest path is 710,293 sT (644,306 mT) behind the average of the quantities harvested at the same date (end of week 10) in the past three years. 
According to the 2020 California Processing Tomato Report released on 27 August by NASS, contracted production for California processing tomatoes was revised downward and is now forecast at 11.4 million short tons (10,34 million metric tonnes),
Taking this change into consideration, quantities being harvested will bring the provisional processed total to more than 71% of the official target of the season (11.4 million sT, or 10.34 million mT).
