Salinas and Santa Maria broccoli supplies are declining due to erratic weather.
Two significant heatwaves, followed by cooler-than normal-temperatures, and reduced sunlight (due to smoke from the California fires) are taking their toll on broccoli quality and maturity
Quality issues such as brown bead, hollow core, and pin rot have become prevalent in all California broccoli growing areas
Harvesting crews are packing for the best quality, which reduces overall yields
The market will continue to increase through September
