UPDATE: ICEBERG LETTUCE

May 5, 2022

Markon First Crop Premium Iceberg availability is limited; Markon Best Available is being substituted as needed due to low weights.

  • Iceberg markets are rising as supplies tighten this week
  • Overall yields are being reduced as more heads are exhibiting sun scald, wind burn, and disease pressure
    • Low nighttime temperatures have slowed maturation
    • Persistent wind has dehydrated some heads while increasing the occurrence of scarring and tip burn
  • Markets are poised to keep inching up over the next 7 to 10 days

Please contact your Markon customer service representative for more information.
