UPDATE: Arizona/California Desert Region Row Crops

March 16, 2020
Supplies of broccoli, cauliflower, celery, lettuces, and leafy greens are limited.   
  • Due to the Coronavirus COVID-19, foodservice demand is slowing and retail sales are on the rise, pushing their produce demand up 20 to 30% over their six-week averages, depending on which report you read 
  • The Arizona/California desert region received up to two inches of rain last week, minimizing harvesting times today due to wet and muddy field conditions; another half-inch to three quarters of an inch is forecast in the desert this Tuesday night, March 17 through Wednesday, March 18  
  • Prices will be elevated through the rest of this week
