California: Crop situation as of September 10, 2022

12/09/2022 - François-Xavier Branthôme - 2022 Season
At the end of August, the USDA revised the contracted production estimate for California processing tomatoes to 9.525 million mT (10,500,000 short tons).

According to the figures collected by PTAB regarding the 2022 California processing tomato harvest, 817,838 metric tonnes (mT) (901,512 short tons (sT)) were delivered to the factories for week ten (ending September 10th). Week eleven (ending September 17th) is estimated to be 827,909 mT (912,614 sT) which would bring the year-to-date total to an estimated 7,208,273 mT (7,945,761 sT). 
For actual tons delivered through week nine (5.562 million mT), California is tracking below (-17.7%) the five year average (6.755 million mT). Data collected by PTAB show that YTD solids amount to 5.39 compared to 5.32 for the same time period in the 2021 season or 0.07 higher. There were 238,268 loads delivered as of September 3, 2022, or 23,877 less than in 2021 for same time period (see also our related articles below).

The 2022 California Organic processing tomato deliveries for the week nine (ending September 3, 2022) were 35,601 mT (39,247 sT). The total tons YTD for week nine is 460,153 mT (507,232 sT), or 8% of the actual total delivered quantities. Provisional total is 13% lower than in 2021 on the same date and 11% higher than the average quantity processed during past three seasons at this time.

If the weekly projections come true, the projected quantities on September 17 would represent approximately 76% of the newly revised California processors' target (9.53 million mT, or 10.5 million sT).
