This article reports that fresh-market vegetable acreage in the U.S. is expected to decline by 4 percent for the 2005 spring season, to an estimated 300,700 acres. The spring fresh-market vegetable season generally runs from April to June 2005. Florida, where crop growth has been slowed this spring by cool, wet, windy weather, is expected to harvest 23 percent of the U.S. spring vegetable area. Cool, wet winter weather delayed planting and other field activity and slowed the growth of some spring crops in California and Arizona. If the cool, wet weather pattern continues along coastal California this spring, yields could be reduced and disease pressure increased, further trimming potential shipment volume, which already has been tightened by reduced acreage.
