FRUITS AND VEGETABLES – DESERT PRODUCTION

California Row CropFavorable climate, productive soils, and the availability of irrigation water have permitted California’s Imperial and Riverside County’s to become leading producers of agricultural products. Irrigation agriculture in these Counties is extremely diverse and includes numerous types of vegetable crops, including: lettuce, carrots, onions, tomatoes, cauliflower and broccoli. Forage crops include: alfalfa, Sudan grass and other animal feeds. Other crops include: sugar beets, wheat and other grains, melons, cotton, and various citrus, fruits and nuts.

Vegetable and melon crops, as a category, have traditionally represented the highest gross value, followed by field crops, fruit and nut crops, seed crops and nursery products, and apiary products.
