FROM THE FIELDS: Salinas Valley Quality Update

October 25, 2018

The Salinas area has been hit with cold nights and warm days, resulting in slowed growth and an increase of mildew pressure and bottom rot in row crop items.

  • Due to such adverse weather conditions, lower case weights and decreased yields are being reported across the industry
  • Tight supplies are expected through the end of the Salinas season as the industry transitions to the Arizona desert growing region
  • Markon Inspectors are reviewing product in all major growing regions and will be providing updates as needed
