Please click here to view a Markon Live from the Fields video regarding the recent transition to the Arizona/California desert growing region and recent quality of lettuce crops.
- Markon First Crop (MFC) is sporadically available out of the Arizona/California desert growing region; Markon Best Available is being substituted as needed
- Desert growing region lettuce supplies were affected by a warm-weather trend during the transition, causing quality challenges such as:
- Internal burn
- Inconsistent growth/weights
- Long core/seeder
- Large ribs/misshapen heads
- Temperatures have cooled down after a passing low-pressure system and light showers yesterday
- Growers are expecting better overall quality and higher case weights in the coming days
- Markon inspectors will continue monitoring quality and will update further as needed
Please contact your Markon customer service representative for further information.
