The 2014 production season will be remembered as the year the rains stopped.  Stand establishment and early-mid season growth and fruit set were generally good.  Drier conditions became prevalent in July and August, however, depending upon location.  These dry conditions persisted through harvest, except for the early part of September.  Dryland yields were highly variable ranging from poor to very good depending on planting date and rainfall.  Irrigated yields were generally good to excellent.  The most common challenges for growers in 2014 included Palmer amaranth, thrips, nematodes, and droughty conditions.  Variety selection remains an important issue.  New varieties are being released in a rapid manner due to increased competition and advancements by industry.  Many of the newer varieties performed very well for growers in 2014.
