UPDATE: Cold Weather in Arizona/California
December 20, 2017
Over the next few days, temperatures will dip below normal in most California and Southern Arizona growing regions.
Major crops that will be affected include: broccoli, cauliflower, celery, citrus, leafy greens, lettuces, and strawberries
Markon First Crop items are limited; Markon Best Available or packer label will be substituted as needed
Sustained cold weather conditions can stunt growth and slow plant maturity
Citrus groves may experience freeze damage if temperatures dip into the 20s for four or more hours; sprinklers and wind machines will used in most groves as frost prevention
With frost expected in the mornings in most growing regions, expect harvesting delays as crews must wait for temperatures to increase before they harvest fields
