FROM THE FIELDS: Aftermath of Desert Hail Storms

September 27, 2019

Markon is closely following the aftermath of the recent heavy rain and hail storm which passed through the greater Yuma, Arizona growing region on Tuesday, October 24. The below pictures give an indication of some of the damage which occurred with broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, and lettuce crops. Some of the plantings will recover, but it could take another week or so to understand the full impact of this storm.

We will update with the latest information and supply outlook as it becomes available.
