Percentages Of State Of The Industry Survey Respondents Growing Produce

If the past few years have been especially rough for greenhouse growers, 2012 showed a slight improvement in sales and production.

An encouraging number of respondents said their 2012 sales volume had increased from 2011 levels, with nearly 17 percent saying sales had grown more than 10 percent. Close to 25 percent say sales were up less than five percent, and 23.2 percent experienced increases between 5 and 10 percent. Nearly 40 percent of respondents plan to keep production levels the same in 2013, and 30.8 percent plan to grow more plants — with 11.7 percent intending to increase production more than 10 percent.

According to a letter from Scott Steinmaus, the horticulture and crop science department head, the proposed changes directly affect the current orchard plantings and other long term plans for the department. The department is committed to making sure that its facilities remain invaluable teaching environments that enable its students to learn about crop, fruit and horticulture production, food safety and pest protection, in addition to providing sites for externally funded research projects that benefit the industry. Industry members are invited to submit comments to the university. According to Steinmaus, a recent eMail to the Cal-Poly community from the university president indicates that all of the input gathered through the end of May will be studied by the planning […]

In total, the 2015 list represents 228,906,001 environmentally controlled square feet of U.S. production, a 5 percent increase over 2014. All told, 26 growers reported that their operation grew between 2014 and 2015.
