A decline in cling peach acres in California is fueling a price surge for growers, a farm organization reports.
Both acreage and yields are trending downward, with growers on pace to produce their second-lowest yield per acre in 30 years, according to the California Farm Bureau.
With the fruit in high demand, canneries are paying as much as $603 a ton for it this year, compared to $518 last year and $497.50 in 2020, the CFB reports.
The Farm Bureau notes this year's price is up 90% from a decade ago, when processors paid $317 a ton.
