Grape Crush Survey

For over 40 years, the Pacific Regional Office, California of USDA's National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS) has conducted the annual Grape Crush survey through a cooperative agreement with the California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA). To fulfill the reporting requirements of Section 55601.5 of the California Food and Agricultural Code, operations who either crush or purchase grapes in California supply the information contained in these reports. California processors and grape growers fund the report via a fee based on the amount crushed. See below for important dates regarding the 2019 Grape Crush Survey.  The Final Grape Crush Report includes all grape tonnage crushed during the crop year season including purchased tonnage and pricing information for grapes with final prices prior to January 10. Details of the crushed tonnage, degrees Brix, and weighted average prices are reported by grape type and variety, as well as by 17 grape pricing districts.
