Online and Print Versions of CAC Annual Crop Estimate Survey Available
To help California avocado growers remain competitive, the California Avocado Commission (CAC) is conducting its annual grower crop survey. It is important California avocado growers complete the survey as it enables the Commission to fine tune crop estimates, predict the harvest flow to market and understand growers’ farming practices in light of global market pressures, weather incidents and water pricing.
The 2018 annual crop survey has been mailed to all producers on record. The deadline for completing the survey is Monday, April 30, 2018.
Pre-season estimates for 2018 indicate a crop volume of approximately 375 million pounds. When completing the survey, please provide your best estimate concerning your grove’s production.
Growers may submit their survey responses online at the California avocado growers website. They also may complete the postage-paid survey they received and return by mail. Simply fold the form so that BUSINESS REPLY MAIL shows on the front. As another option, the form may be faxed to 619.445.3346.
