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
