UPDATE: Rain in the Arizona-California Desert Regions
February 20, 2017
The Arizona/California desert growing regions received between a half and one inch of rain over this past weekend. Conditions are muddy; suppliers are working to keep boxes as dry and clean as possible.
Temperatures are predicted to rise to the low to mid-70s over the next several days, causing more bottom rot/decay, increased mildew pressure, premature pinking, shortened shelf-life, and weak tip in many commodity and value-added items.
Markon inspectors will continue to monitor quality and field conditions closely and work with growers to select the best lots available.
Please contact your Markon customer service representative for more information.
