Tulare County’s total gross production value for 2019 is $7,505,352,100. This represents an increase of $292,048,700 or 4.0% above 2018’s value of $7,213,303,400.

Total milk production decreased by 11%. Livestock and Poultry’s gross value of $665,379,000 represents a decrease of 4.2% below 2018, mostly due to a lower per unit value for cattle. The total value of all Field Crop production was $496,171,000, a decrease of 5.0% from the previous year. This decrease is mostly attributed to lower acreage for several field crops. Fruit and Nut commodities were valued at $4,555,465,000 an increase of 11.0%. This increase can be partially attributed to the increase in Almond, Pistachio, and Tangerine acreage. Nursery Products decreased by 25.1% compared to 2018 with an overall value of $72,794,000. Vegetable crops were valued at $19,929,000, representing a 15.2% increase. This can be attributed to an increase in yield in both Broccoli and Cucumbers compared to 2018.

Tulare County’s agricultural strength is based on the diversity of the crops produced. The 2019 crop report covers more than 120 different commodities, 44 of which have a gross value in excess of $1,000,000.
