[ARCHIVED] 2017 Nevada County Crop Report

2017 Crop Report

This week the Nevada County Agricultural Commissioner presented the 2017 Nevada County Annual Crop and Livestock Report to the Board of Supervisors. The annual report helps gauge the economic health and diversity of the agricultural community in Nevada County. In 2017, the total gross value for agricultural commodities produced in Nevada County was $23,862,400, an increase of 12% over the previous year.


The timber industry showed the largest gain this year with an impressive 142% increase in production. Vegetable crops continue to see increase demands as well as our emerging cut flower industry. The wine grape industry continues to rebound from a ten-year low in 2015 when wine grape values were under $900k. Today wine grapes are valued almost $2 million dollars, a nice recovery in a short amount of time. Unfortunately, for the 3rd straight year, cattle, primary steers and heifers, the county's highest valued commodity, continued to experience declining values, mainly due to lower market prices.


The entire 2017 Nevada County Crop and Livestock Report can be viewed at online from the Nevada County Agricultural Commissioner’s website. Please contact the Agricultural Commissioner's Office at (530) 470-2690, or by email AGDept@co.nevada.ca.us if you have any questions.
