The article presents information about the vegetable acreage decline forecast by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). The early outlook for spring-season fresh-market and melon plantings indicates a small decline from a year earlier as growers respond to generally lower prices received last spring and this winter, according to USDA. Due to several incidences of torrential winter rains along California's south and central coasts, supply gaps for some leafy crops may appear during the early spring season, according to the USDA predictions.
