Livestock and Poultry’s gross value of $732,406,000 represents an increase of 9% above 2020, mostly due to a higher per unit value for cattle and poultry. 

The total value of all Field Crop production in 2021 was $571,436,000, an increase of 13% from the previous year. This increase is mostly attributed to better yields and prices for several field crops. Fruit and Nut commodities were valued at $4,607,905,000 an increase of 20%. This increase can be partially attributed to the increase in Almond, Pistachio, and Tangerine acreage. Nursery Products increased by 9% compared to 2020 with an overall value of $118,779,000. Vegetable crops were valued at $20,544,000, representing a 22% decrease. This can be attributed to a decrease in acreage for Sweet Corn compared to 2020.

Tulare County’s agricultural strength is based on the diversity of the crops produced. The 2021 crop report covers more than 150 different commodities, 42 of which have a gross value in excess of $1,000,000. Although individual commodities may experience difficulties from year to year, Tulare County continues to produce high-quality crops that provide food and fiber to more than 90 countries throughout the world.
