 AVOCADOS EXPERIENCE HEAVIEST LOSSES IN CA FIRES

Crops damage estimates are now being assessed by State and industry officials and from their initial reports it appears avocado fields took a significant hit during the Thomas Fire. Accounting for roughly 65% of damaged farm land in Ventura County, 6,603 acres of avocado agricultural land has been indicated as being damage or destroyed. Outside of these crops having been engulfed in flames, high winds caused developing fruit to fall from trees in areas outside the fire's path. While it is still too soon to predict the long-term affects of the disaster, many growers presume the county to have lost 10-15% of the 2017-2018 crop.

Additional Crop Losses:
  • Lemons - 1,767 acres 
  • Oranges - 542 acres
  • Raspberries - 2 acres
  • Strawberries - 23 acres
  • Tangerines - 166 acres
  • Walnuts - 155 acres
