2021 SB County Crop Report cover.jpg

The 2021 Santa Barbara County Crop Report is a full-color, 24-page booklet filled with graphs, charts, photographs and narrative text about the county's agricultural bounty.

Santa Barbara County’s Agriculture Production Report for 2021 is a far cry from the vast majority of other crop reports in the Agriculture/Weights and Measures Department archives, which span 105 years since 1916.

The report released Monday is a 24-page, full-color report filled with graphics, charts, photographs and narrative text to explain some of the things affecting agriculture and the efforts being taken to mitigate them.

1968 Crop Report.jpg

Still black-and-white and typewritten, except for the cover shown here, the 1968 Santa Barbara County Crop Report was eight pages long. It included crops no longer produced in the county or in such low quantity they aren't counted separately.

1916 Crop Report.jpg

Santa Barbara County's 1916 Crop Report was a single typewritten page of values for some odd and questionable "crops" like petroleum, motion picture films, mineral water and, oddly enough, California sea lions, which today are a protected species.
