FROM THE FIELDS: Desert Growing Region Quality Update
March 06, 2020
Periods of rain and heat over the last few weeks have caused widespread mildew at the field level in both commodity and value-added items. Suppliers are bypassing fields, as necessary, and trimming damaged leaves to avoid the worst of the quality issues.
Current forecasts call for temperatures in the low to mid-80s over the next several days, which will continue to accelerate maturity as well as quality concerns.
