Crop Report

Crop reports: the latest from the fields.

Last updated Friday, July 21.

 

We've been hard at work harvesting the Best of the Great Northwest. Our facilities are busy freezing, packing, and shipping product.

Peas

Pea Harvest has been completed in Eastern WA.  West side pea production will continue through the end of the month.   The green pea season started out slow and cold and then heated up quickly.  The extreme heat lead to National having to bypass acreage on the east side in order to stay within grade, as did all processors, in the Pacific Northwest.  National’s total production will end roughly 10% below budget due to Mother Nature.   Overall production numbers in the PNW seem to be slightly down due to weather.

Corn

Corn will commence the third week of July.  This is later than last year due to the cooler spring.  National anticipates a normal corn crop at this time.

Carrots

The baby whole pack is complete. Chehalis is currently running crinkle cuts and smooth slices. Dicer carrots will start in Moses Lake around 9/25. Quality has been good thus far.

Green Beans

Harvest has started.  The green bean start-up has been typical; a slower start due to the cooler wet spring.  Quality and Yields are expected to be average at this time.  

Diced Carrots:

Carrots are planted and continue to grow.

Lima Beans:

Stay tuned for updates throughout the season.
