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
