Strawberries Again Top Crop In Ventura County

Posted on Wednesday, July 25, 2012 12:01am

Strawberries remain Ventura County’s top agricultural crop, but raspberries finished second for the first time ever.

The 2011 Ventura County Crop Report shows that strawberries had a value of $625 million dollars last year, more than a third of the year’s $1.84 billion total.

Finishing second for the first time ever were raspberries.

The $1.84 billion dollar total is the first time the total dropped since 2005, with avocados, and celery among the crops which slipped last year.
