Iceberg markets continue to rise amid tight supplies. Markets are expected to elevate.
- Markon First Crop Premium Iceberg Lettuce is available
- Markon Best Available (MBA) will become more prevalent in the next few weeks as suppliers cut ahead to avoid quality issues and resulting in weight specifications not being met
- Overall volume is tight due to heads exhibiting sun scald, wind burn, and disease/pest pressure
- Nationwide heat has reduced supplies in local and regional growing areas, increasing West Coast demand
- Mildew pressure, INSV, internal burn, and thrip damage are all potential challenges observed in most lots
- Markets are poised to keep rising over the next 7 to 10 days
