Abstract

Normally a bumper crop in agriculture leads to lower prices, but not always. In 2007 California's processing tomato growers harvested a near-record crop and yet prices are rising. The international demand for California's tomato paste is strong and 2008 could be another good year for the processing tomato industry if Mother Nature cooperates.
