Supplies are sufficient in the Arizona/California desert growing region. Markon First Crop (MFC) Iceberg Lettuce is available.
- Yields have fallen recently amid rain, moderate-to-strong winds, and freezing overnight temperatures
- Quality is fair; epidermal blistering, fringe burn, and weak tip are present in some lots but most is being trimmed off at harvest points
- Expect case weights to increase as warmer weather spurs growth through mid-February, despite light ice formation
- Prices are steady due to an abundance of product and will ease over the next 5-7 days
