(Aug. 21) This year’s Washington apple crop has been estimated at 99.6 million boxes, up slightly from 98.4 million boxes in 2007, according to the preseason forecast by the Wenatchee Valley Traffic Association and the Yakima Valley Growers-Shippers Association, as reported by the Wenatchee World.

"This is definitely a manageable crop,” Bruce Grim, manager of the Washington Apple Marketing Association, told the newspaper. “There is no reason we can't continue to see prices in the same range of $20 a box."
