UPDATE: ICEBERG

July 28, 2022

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

Please contact your Markon customer service representative for more information.
