December 19, 2017
Please click here to view a Markon Live from the Fields video about widespread lettuce ice in Yuma, Arizona.
The temperatures in the Arizona/California desert region fell into the low to mid-30s last night
Widespread lettuce ice developed, causing delays as long as two hours as crews waited for the product to thaw
Cold temperatures will stall growth, which will cause a further drop in overall case weights
The younger fields will start to get blisters that then turn into epidermal peel
Current forecasts predict low temperatures over the next several days
