FROM THE FIELDS: SALINAS VALLEY LETTUCE
April 16, 2020
Markon Best Available is currently being substituted for Markon First Crop (MFC) Iceberg and Romaine packs due to light weights; MFC Green Leaf Lettuce is available.
Most leafy greens harvesting has transitioned to California’s Salinas Valley, but limited supplies will remain available out of Huron, California for the next 10 days
Iceberg and romaine lettuces are exhibiting mildew caused by recent storms
Mildew pressure will linger into next week as forecasts call for cool temperatures and a small amount of rain on Monday, April 20
Low iceberg case weights (ranging from 35 to 42 pounds) and quality issues in romaine are keeping product in MBA despite adequate supplies
Please contact your Markon customer service representative for more information.
