Southern California, including the Oxnard growing region, received record amounts of rainfall over the past 36 hours due to the latest atmospheric river event. Rainfall totals of 3”-3.5” are being reported.

Strawberries are the most heavily impacted produce item by far, with growers reporting significant amounts of rain-damaged fruit that will need to be culled in the coming days. Additional mitigation steps will also need to be taken to reduce the potential for pin-rot/decay issues to develop in the saturated conditions.

Markon inspectors are monitoring the situation and will update further as needed.
