Morning temperatures in the Arizona/California desert growing region ranged from the upper 20°s to 30°s, causing widespread lettuce ice. Harvesting and loading delays can be expected over the next few days with more ice in the forecast, but temperatures will increase throughout the weekend.
The quality of lettuce items has been very good overall despite some light case weights due to the recent cold temperatures. Markon inspectors will be monitoring supplies closely and will update further with any developments.
