UPDATE: Salinas Valley Row Crops

July 08, 2019

Iceberg, romaine, green leaf, broccoli, cauliflower, and celery stocks are limited in California’s Salinas Valley; demand exceeds supply. Markets will remain active for the next week or two.

  • Processors are harvesting more acres than normal due to light lettuce weights
  • Regional growing seasons (Colorado, Eastern Canada, and the Northeastern U.S.) are off to a very slow start as a result of adverse weather conditions
  • Lower yields are forecast in all growing areas over the next two weeks; demand will continue to outpace supply
  • Value-added lettuce and leaf products will remain at trigger levels this week and next
