UPDATE: Salinas, California Weather Outlook
June 19, 2017
A high pressure system is creating unseasonably high temperatures in California. Central California growing regions will experience temperatures 10-20 degrees above normal this week. By Monday, June 26, a slight cool down is expected, but temperatures will remain elevated.
Markon First Crop Premium Green Leaf, Iceberg, Romaine, and Strawberries are sporadic; Markon Best Available will be substituted as needed
Higher temperatures will promote crop growth, but can also create heat-related quality challenges and shelf-life issues in lettuces, leafy greens, and strawberries
Expect more burn, dehydration, growth cracks, and sunscald
Harvesting crews will be starting as early as possible to avoid peak temperatures
