FROM THE FIELDS: Transition Update
October 29, 2018
Initial reports from the desert growing regions have vegetable row crops five to eight days behind schedule
High temperatures and heavy rains, in late September and earlier this month, have stalled growth
California’s Salinas and Huron seasons are forecast to end earlier than expected (early November)
Expect tight supplies and lighter case weights for lettuce items across the industry during the earlier part of the desert growing season
Markon Inspectors will be in the desert region next week and will provide further updates
