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
