Vegetables and Melons Outlook: August 2001
by Gary Lucier and Charles Plummer
Outlook No. (VGS-285) 27 pp, August 2001
This summer (largely July-September 2001), fresh-market vegetable and melon area for harvest is forecast to rise 2 percent from a year ago. Increased acreage is a reflection of stronger grower prices since last summer. California, accounting for 50 percent of this year’s summer-season area, increased acreage 3 percent. New York, the second leading summer-season producer, with 11 percent of acreage, expects to harvest 5 percent more area than a year ago despite an unusually cool, wet spring which hindered planting.
