UPDATE: Arizona/California Desert Growing Region
March 08, 2017
Broccoli, cauliflower, green leaf, iceberg, and romaine prices are climbing. Demand will exceed supply through the rest of the desert growing season.
Warm weather is forecast through the next few weeks; this will push harvests further ahead of schedule
The desert has approximately three weeks of product left in the fields
Supplies will be limited through early May as the Salinas Valley will not have enough volume to cover demand
Heavy rain has taken its toll on Salinas Valley growers; the first plantings are scheduled to be harvested in late March/early April
Expect a sharp rise in prices over the next 7 to 10 days
