The California avocado season has come to a close at just over 230 million pounds. The Commission’s latest round of surveys estimates the 2023-24 crop to be approximately 200 million pounds, which the CAC Board of Directors used as the volume to base the budget on for the upcoming fiscal year. CAC’s final and official pre-season crop survey will be sent to handlers in November, with volume and weekly harvest projections finalized before the start of 2024.
