UPDATE: Rain in California Growing Regions
April 05, 2018
Rain is forecast for California’s Salinas and San Joaquin Valley growing regions beginning tomorrow, Friday, April 6 and persisting through Saturday, April 7. Expected totals range from one to two inches.
Rain in both regions will create challenges and delays as growers are transitioning from Huron to Salinas
Romaine supplies continue to be most affected as the Huron season is winding down and Salinas harvesting is starting in a limited capacity
While rain will help with plant growth, erratic weather patterns will impact quality and shelf-life for lettuce and baby leaf items
Crews will harvest and pack ahead of schedule to fill orders for early next week
