You can’t keep a good farm down – Turlock Journal

Despite COVID, supply chain disruptions, destructive winds and atmospheric river storms, California remains an agriculture powerhouse, according to the recently released Agricultural Statics Review for 2021-2022. The sales value generated by California agriculture increased by 3.6 percent between the 2020 and 2021 crop years. The state’s 69,000 farms and ranches received $51.1 billion for their output, up from $49.4 billion received in 2020. Over a third of the country’s vegetables and two-thirds of the country’s fruits and nuts are grown in California.
