The article reports that U.S. fresh-market vegetable and melon acreage is expected to rise by 3% in fall 2005 to 163,900 acres. Fall acreage is forecast the same or higher for all produce except for celery, cucumbers, head lettuce and tomatoes. Although crops in both Eastern and Western growing areas were reported to be in good condition as of mid-October 2005, yields and shipment volume could change quickly, given the variability in fall weather.
