FROM THE FIELDS: DESERT REGION FORECAST

January 31, 2022

The Arizona/California desert region experienced light lettuce ice in its colder areas over the last few mornings; temperatures dipped into the 30s F. Forecasts call for more light ice throughout the weekend followed by strong winds and a slight chance for rain on Tuesday, February 1 and Wednesday, February 2. Another wave of more significant freezing temperatures and lettuce ice is expected from February 4 to February 6.

Production and loading delays are likely to occur over the next week as a result of these weather challenges. Markon inspectors will be monitoring field conditions and will continue to update on quality and supply outlook.
