California: Crop situation as of September 17, 2022

19/09/2022 - 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). 
For the third week in a row, 2022 California processing tomato deliveries begin to consistently and significantly exceed the 800,000 mT per week threshold.

According to the figures collected by PTAB regarding the 2022 California processing tomato harvest, 847,314 metric tonnes (mT) (934,004 short tons (sT)) were delivered to the factories for week eleven (ending September 17th). Week twelve (ending September 24th) is estimated to be 865,269 mT (953,796 sT) which would bring the year-to-date total to an estimated 8,097,334 mT (8,925,783 sT). 
For actual tons delivered through week ten (6,385 million mT), California is tracking below (-16%) the five year average (7.606 million mT). Data collected by PTAB show that YTD solids amount to 5.36 compared to 5.31 for the same time period in the 2021 season or 0.05 higher. There were 273,901 loads delivered as of September 3, 2022, or 21,029 less than in 2021 for same time period.


There was no deliveries of Organic processing tomato during the week ten (ending September 10, 2022) so that the total tons YTD remains unchanged at 460,153 mT (507,232 sT), which is now 7.2% of the actual total delivered quantities. Provisional total is now 15% lower than in 2021 on the same date and 5% higher than the average quantity processed during past three seasons at this time.

If the weekly projections come true, the projected quantities on September 24 would represent approximately 85% of the revised California processors' target (9.53 million mT, or 10.5 million sT).
