FROM THE FIELDS: TENDER LEAF QUALITY
March 27, 2020
Record rainfall and high temperatures have caused an acceleration of plant maturity, reducing individual leaves’ cell structure strength and increasing mildew pressure throughout the industry. Markon Inspectors are seeing premature breakdown and yellowing in tender leaf items such as arugula, spring mix, and spinach, shortening shelf-life. Maintaining the cold chain is essential for shelf-life longevity.
