UPDATE: Excessive Heat in California's Salinas Valley

August 28, 2017

Excessive heat is expected in the Salinas Valley through the entire week, creating quality concerns. 


  • Markon First Crop Premium Green Leaf, Iceberg, and Romaine are sporadic; Markon Best Available will be substituted as needed
  • Heat-related defects such as bottom rot, decay, dense texture, increased insect pressure, internal burn, premature pinking, seeder, and shortened shelf-life may develop in commodity and value-added items
  • Markon recommends ordering for quick turns and maintaining the cold chain to maximize quality and shelf-life
