In 2003, total greenhouse production in the three countries has been estimated at 528,078 metric tons (Table 1). Canada accounted for about 42% of the total production, while the U.S. and Mexico accounted for 30% and 28% respectively. Mexico is leading in field tomato production, while Canada has the lowest field tomato production.
