Green leaf, iceberg, and romaine markets are inching higher following heavy rainfall in the Arizona and California desert regions.

  • Markon First Crop (MFC) Premium Green Leaf, Iceberg, and Romaine are available; Markon Best Available (MBA) is being substituted as needed due to low weights and diminished quality
  • Bottom rot, dirt/mud, epidermal blistering/peeling with discoloration, mechanical damage, mildew, and pinking are more prevalent after heavy rainfall
  • Production crews are working slowly through poor field conditions, reducing overall output and pushing markets higher
  • Expect markets to continue rising this week, before leveling off next week once production returns to normal
