UPDATE: Spring Transition 2019
March 01, 2019
Despite rain and lower temperatures in California's major growing districts, the transition of iceberg and green leaf from the Arizona/California desert region to the Salinas Valley will occur the week of March 18. Arizona/California desert will ship through early April.
California's northern growing districts (Huron, Santa Maria, and Salinas Valley) are behind schedule by approximately two weeks, but will meet start dates if temperatures rise
Weather conditions over the past two months will cause tighter inventories, quality issues, smaller sizes, and lower weights
Demand for produce will increase as growers transition from the winter to the spring season
Markets will remain elevated for the next four to six weeks
Quality will improve and supplies will increase by late April
