Hurricane Ian is projected to intensify into a Category Four hurricane and pose a major danger to the southeastern United States, especially Florida, Georgia, and the Carolinas over the upcoming week. Current projections are anticipating landfall on the west side of Florida by late Thursday, September 29, and heading northwards.
- Potential heavy rainfall will have the largest impact on Florida’s fall crops that have already been planted; these crops are mostly planted seeds/seedlings and include:
- Bell Peppers
- Green Beans
- Expect delays in Georgia production, which started up last week, and potential plant damage over the upcoming weekend
- The Carolinas are past their peak growing season; inclement weather might disrupt or bring an early end to their season
- Growers are expected to harvest as much as possible during the first part of this week in preparation for inclement weather
Markon will continue to monitor the Hurricane Ian’s path and update as more information becomes available.
