For the third straight year, the value of ag products in Santa Barbara County surpassed the $1 billion mark.

The county crop report shows for 2008, production value reached about $1.14 billion. That is an increase of about three percent compared to 2007. More than 50 different crops reported gross receipts, or sales before expenses, of more than $1 million.

Daren Gee has been in the strawberry business for years. Once again, strawberries remain the county's top crop, grossing more than $309 million. - KSBY
