Please click here to view a Markon Live From the Fields video regarding light lettuce ice in the Arizona/California desert growing region.

  • Light lettuce ice developed over the weekend and again this morning causing minor production delays
  • Sporadic ice may continue over the next several days, but forecasts call for higher temperatures this week
  • Weather throughout the Yuma season has been much milder compared to previous years
  • December/January are historically the most challenging months of the year
  • This season, frost events have been few and far between, and there has been no rain
  • Although some frost-related defects are present, Markon inspectors are currently seeing some of the best lettuce quality in recent memory for this time of year
