Mexico’s tomato crop to remain stable in 2023 

Wed 14/06/2023 by Richard Wilkinson

Assuming normal growing conditions for open-field and shade house cultivation, as well continued greenhouse technology use, Mexico’s 2023 fresh tomato crop is estimated at 3.87m tons, a marginal increase over the official 2022 production estimate of 3.8m tons, according to USDA data. Despite adverse weather conditions in some major producing areas, to date, tomato production has not been adversely affected. Sinaloa remains Mexico’s largest tomato- producing state and accounts for 22% of total production, followed by San Luis Potosi, Michoacán, Zacatecas, Jalisco. Mexican tomato exports to the United States will remain strong due to robust supplies and flat domestic consumption.
