Please click here to view a Markon Live from the Fields video regarding cold temperatures and lettuce ice in the Arizona/California desert growing region.
- Lettuce ice has developed over the last few days in the desert region
- Morning temperatures have dipped into the mid-30°s to low 40°s
- Production and loading delays are expected over the next several days
- Plant growth will likely slow down and defects such as epidermal blistering and peeling may develop on lettuce items
- If cold weather persists, we will continue to see light carton and bin weights for commodity and value-added lettuces for several more weeks
Please contact your Markon customer service representative for further information.
