FROM THE FIELDS: ERRATIC WEATHER IN THE DESERT REGION

March 11, 2022

The Arizona/California desert region is experiencing winds up to 40 MPH today. Lettuce ice is forecast for this weekend, with morning temperatures dropping to the low to mid-30°s. Weather will warm up next week, with temperatures reaching as high as low 90°s by Tuesday, March 15.

Markon inspectors anticipate that light case weights, tight supplies, and ongoing quality challenges will continue in lettuce items for the rest of the desert season.
