  • Packing on hold to assess California citrus damage

    12/11/2013 06:03:00 PM
    Mike Hornick

    As California citrus growers endured a week and counting of freezing overnight temperatures, the industry put a 48-hour hold on packing Dec. 10 to give authorities more time to inspect for damaged fruit at 81 facilities.

    The move came out of meetings with San Joaquin Valley growers, industry representatives and regulators aimed in part at keeping damaged mandarin and navel oranges off the fresh market.

    The scope of losses is still being determined but will range from major to manageable depending on location and variety, according to Exeter-based California Citrus Mutual.

    Enough harvested fruit was on hand to supply the market through the holiday season without affectng consumer prices, the trade group reported. The 48-hour hold wasn’t expected to impede movement, though it was costly for packers.

    “We’re just going to wait to get through this event, then pick up the pieces and decide where we’re going to go from here,” Doug Carman, vice president of farming for Los Angeles-based Paramount Citrus, which markets mandarins under the Wonderful Halos label, said Dec. 11. “We’re fighting the frost and developing a game plan but don’t have one in place yet. The frost isn’t over yet.”

    Temperatures reached the low 20s in parts of the valley during the Dec. 4-10 cold spell. For Dec. 11-12 the National Weather Service forecast lows of 31 and 32 degrees respectively in Reedley with a slight warming trend to follow.

    State and county inspectors are checking groves as well as packinghouses. Field inspections are planned for more than 200,000 acres in Fresno, Kern and Tulare counties. The aim is to eliminate most damaged fruit before harvesting.

    “Although temperatures are now on the upswing, the compound effect of a seven-day freeze event has made the fruit more susceptible to damage at higher temperature points,” Citrus Mutual president Joel Nelsen said in a news releas

  • Fresh Del Monte posts break-even results for 4Q

    Posted on February 19, 2013
    CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) — Fresh Del Monte Produce reported breakeven results for its fourth quarter, driven by reduced expenses and lower charges.

    The quarterly performance compares with a loss of $10.1 million, or 17 cents per share, a year earlier.

    Fresh Del Monte's current quarter included impairment and other charges totaling $100,000. A year ago, these charges totaled $3.5 million.

    Selling, general and administrative expenses dropped to $40 million from $48.8 million. There was also a larger income tax provision in the year-ago period.

    Revenue for the period ended Dec. 28 dipped 1 percent to $776.9 million from $780.8 million.

    The company said Tuesday that its revenue results were hurt by lower sales from its banana segment, which was somewhat offset by better sales from its other fresh produce division.

    For the year, Fresh Del Monte Produce Inc. earned $143.2 million, or $2.46 per share. In the previous year the Coral Gables, Fla. company earned $92.5 million, or $1.56 per share.

    Adjusted earnings were $2.54 per share.

    Annual revenue fell 5 percent to $3.42 billion from $3.59 billion.

  • Sacramento wakes up to frost, possible showers forecast for Thursday

    Sacramento area residents awoke to frost this morning, with outlying areas getting the brunt of dipping temperatures, according to the National Weather Service in Sacramento.

    "A lot of places in the valley, especially in the rural areas, saw 31 or 32 degrees," in the early morning hours, said Johnnie Powell, a meteorologist with the weather service. "There will be one more chilly morning on Monday, then it will bounce back up to normal for this time of year."

    The low this morning in downtown Sacramento was 36 degrees. It dipped to 34 at Sacramento Executive Airport, Powell said. In the city of Davis, the thermometer fell to 32, and Vacaville recorded 31 degrees.

    Forecasters predict lows in the low- to mid-40s by Monday night. The first part of the week is expected to be dry, with high temperatures nudging to the mid-60s by Tuesday.

    A system moving inland from the coast could develop later in the week, bringing a chance of showers in the Sacramento region by Thursday night.

    Frost in November!

    Posted by: bell32ndst, 3:37 PM GMT on November 11, 2012

    Wow! This is insane. The sun has been up for an hour, and there is still frost on the north facing roofs around, and in my yard in the shade. The high here yesterday was 57 and the low this morning was 30. These are temperatures like we normally see only in January, and then only when a major winter storm comes through. Just a few days ago it was in the 80s, the glorious fall weather that we get in Phoenix, clear skies with an occasional puff of cirrus.

    It's strange. The first frost in this part of Phoenix used to be after the middle of December, if it came at all. I remember years without a frost at all, though none recently. The last few years, the first frost has been at the beginning of December, and there have been lots of frosts. I think it is because it is getting drier, so there is more radiative cooling. Now this. The deciduous trees haven't even lost their leaves, and the citrus is still in growth stage.

    The official temperature is higher. It is accurate only for the micro climate around the official Phoenix weather station near the airport. There is a lot of city in every direction from there, and it also is more humid, since there is a lot of flood irrigation in those older parts of the city that used to be agricultural. The Salt River probably drains cold air away from the area, as well.
