LIVE FROM THE FIELDS: Salinas Valley Quality
April 02, 2015
Please click here to view a Markon Live from the Fields video about initial green leaf and lettuce quality in the Salinas Valley.
- Early season iceberg and leaf lettuce lots are exhibiting very good quality and high weights
- Recent high temperatures have increased insect pressure; harvesting crews are reducing and/or eliminating insects during the packing process
- The Salinas Valley has the best quality due to higher insects counts in Huron, California and significant heat-related defects in the desert growing region
- Markon inspectors will be evaluating new lots as suppliers move north during the transition and will update further as needed
Please contact your Markon customer service representative for more information.
