Fresno County farmers led the nation in crop production value for third straight year

Fresno County farmers continue to defy the odds with innovation and resiliency. In 2020, Fresno County led the nation in crop production value for the third straight year. Overall, the county’s crops totaled $7.98 billion, a rise of $222.09 million or 2.86% from 2019.

Neighboring counties accompanied Fresno in being national farm leaders. Six others cracked the US top 10: Kern, Tulare, Monterey, Stanislaus, Merced, and San Joaquin.

Fresno County Department of Agriculture issued 16,808 phytosanitary certificates for 72 commodities exported to 101 countries last year. Inspectors also certified 1,403.2 acres of alfalfa, lettuce, radish, and onion grown for seed export.

According to the US Department of Agriculture, the top 10 ag states in 2020 were California, Iowa, Nebraska, Texas, Kansas, Minnesota, Illinois, Wisconsin, Indiana, and North Carolina. California’s farmers and ranchers produced $49 billion in commodities, nearly 14% of the value of all crops grown in the United States.
