County of San Diego Annual Crop Report

Agriculture revenues near $1.8 billion

Agriculture values are shining for the third year out of the past four, growing close to $1.8 billion, a height they last reached in 2014, in the County of San Diego’s annual Crop Report. The value of all agriculture crops and commodities rose about 1.5% in the new Crop Report that covers the 2019 growing season.

This year’s growth was fueled in large part by a 5.8% increase, from $322.9 million in 2018 to $341.7 million in 2019, in the overall values of Fruits and Nuts, a category that includes three of the Top 10 crops: avocados, lemons and oranges.

The annual Crop Report is compiled by the County’s Department of Agriculture, Weights and Measures and can be seen online. The report provides a yearly snapshot of an industry that remains a staple of the region’s economy despite challenges like drought, rising water costs, fires, freezes and pests.
