UPDATE: Lettuce and Leaf Supplies
September 20, 2019
Lettuce and leaf prices are easing. Expect good supplies into next week.
Earlier in the week, the Salinas Valley received light rain; followed by warm temperatures, which accelerated growth
Growers have increased their daily harvested due to the accelerated plant growth, creating more supply than the market can bear and reducing price levels
Quality concerns will still be present in finished packs, seeders, mildew, and tip burn
