Evaluation of Direct and Indirect Economic Losses by Georgia Fruit and Vegetable Producers, Spring 2011


  • McKissick, John C.
  • Kane, Sharon P.


During Spring 2011, numerous agricultural businesses in Georgia reported labor shortages, primarily in the fresh fruit and vegetable crops. These crops are most dependent on timely, seasonal harvesting and packing labor in order to market perishable, high-valued products. This report summarizes a comprehensive survey conducted by the Georgia Fruit and Vegetable Growers Association (GFVGA) examining the magnitude and economic consequence of losses reported during the spring crop growing season. Results provide an analysis of the reported losses incurred directly by growers and the resulting impacts in local communities and the state.
