CASS Releases Objective Walnut Crop Estimate

The California Agricultural Statistics Service (CASS) today released its Objective Estimate on the 2008 California walnut crop. The estimate is 375,000 tons. This compares very closely with the subjective estimate established in late July by the Independent Handlers Coalition of 372,000 tons. If the estimates are correct, the 2008 crop will break the old record of 354,000 tons set in 2005.
