Abstract

Peaches are the predominant tree fruit in Utah. Preliminary estimates for 1947 indicate a crop of 933,000 bushels valued at $1,679,000, which represents approximately 27 percent of the value of the major fruits grown in Utah and 1.2 percent of the value of all agricultural commodities grown in the state (5:23). It should be noted, however, that the 1947 peach crop was somewhat above normal. The estimated average annual production over the 10-year period 1938 to 1947 was 722,000 bushels.
