Volumes will likely be down into early September, when summer plantings in Samta Maria and Oxnard start to kick in, Casca said.

With the lower voluems has come larger sizing, a trend that should continue, Casca said.

“With the cooler weather, the size is coming up,” he said.

Fruit also should be on the larger side at the beginning of the summer planting deals.
