Abstract

Utah ranked nineteenth in the United States in the production of peaches for a ten year period 1940-49, producing 1.2 percent of the national total. Peach production is an important part of Utah's fruit industry. The 1951 peach crop estimated at 800,000 bushels, valued at $1,520,000 represents 32 percent of the value of all the fruit grown in Utah and 0.8 percent of the value of all agricultural commodities grown in the state.
