UPDATE: Desert Weather & Harvesting Conditions

The Arizona/California desert growing region received approximately .20” to an inch of rainfall last night and an additional .20” to .40” could be recorded today.
In anticipation of the rain, growers packed ahead leading into the Thanksgiving holiday
Muddy field conditions will cause harvesting and loading delays; some suppliers have cancelled today’s production altogether
Temperatures will be much lower through the weekend; lettuce ice is forecast for Saturday, November 30 and Sunday, December 1
Markon inspectors will be monitoring desert row crop items for any rain or ice-related issues
