As of Friday morning, the unrest in Culiacan has eased. The Mexican government has deployed an additional 1000 personnel to Sinaloa to stabilize the region. Despite a reduced workforce, most growers have resumed light harvests today.
Many roads in the region have reopened; however, checkpoints are causing major delays for carriers moving product north through the state of Sinaloa. Most suppliers have enough supplies arriving today, or currently in Arizona and California, to cover orders through the weekend. Markon predicts snug inventories, with improvements shortly after.
Markon is working to fill all orders and will continue to update as more information becomes available.
