Updated statistics on US greenhouse veg production per state

Gary Hickman of Cuesta Roble Consulting has once again updated his latest report that estimates the acreage and number of greenhouse growers in the U.S. by state. According to Hickman's report, the largest number of greenhouse vegetable growers/producers are located in the states of Pennsylvania – 593, New York- 435, California- 427, Maine-386 and Michigan-341. 

The rankings by number of acres of greenhouse vegetable production per state are somewhat different from the number of growers: California- 650 ac., Arizona- 319 ac., Texas-187 ac., New York-115 ac., Florida- 81 ac.

With the average U.S.A. sales/acre of greenhouse grown vegetables at $280,000, the states with the largest number of acres of greenhouses are also the top 5 states in the category of sales/state (million $): California- $165, Arizona- $124, Texas- $47, New York- $27, Florida- $15. 

Of the total number of greenhouse vegetable farms, 1,515 are certified organic producers, and account for 460 ac.
