RESULTS

PROCEDURES

The Pacific Regional Office of the USDA’s National Agricultural
Statistics Service (NASS) conducts an acreage survey of
California citrus growers as funding is available. The purpose
of this survey is to provide bi-annual citrus acreage, which
includes information on new plantings and removals. It is the
continuation of a long series of industry-funded Citrus Acreage
surveys.

The major source of the citrus detailed acreage data was a
questionnaire mailed to all citrus growers currently on NASS’
database.
The mailing was made in January 2020 to
approximately 5,400 citrus growers.
The questionnaire
contained previously reported crop, variety, and acreage
information preprinted. Producers were asked to update the
information with new plantings, removals, and any other
corrections; and new growers were mailed a blank
questionnaire. Growers were given about eight weeks to
respond by mail. A telephone follow-up was then undertaken.
Field personnel were unable to personally visit large growers
who did not respond by mail because of social distancing
requirements that have been in effect since March 2020.

Users are cautioned that this report consists of two parts:



Table 1 shows estimated statewide bearing acreage for the
2017-18, 2018-19, and 2019-20 seasons.
Tables 2, 3, and 4 show detailed acreage data by type,
variety, and year planted -- as voluntarily reported by citrus
growers and maintained in NASS’ database.

With perfect information, the estimated statewide bearing
acreage and the detailed acreage data would be the same.
Generally, this will not be the case for the following reasons:



A voluntary survey of approximately 5,400 citrus growers is
unlikely to ever attain 100 percent completeness.
It is difficult for USDA/NASS to detect growers who are
planting citrus for the first time.

To arrive at the estimated statewide bearing acreage, the NASS
citrus acreage database was compared with pesticide
application data maintained by County Agricultural
Commissioners and the Department of Pesticide Regulation.
ACKNOWLEDGMENTS
Thank you to the many orchard operators, owners, and
management firms that provided their acreage information.
Funding for the survey was provided by the California Citrus
industry.
