Romaine prices are rising.
- Early September’s high temperatures have led to the development of internal and fringe burn, seeder core, and sunscald
- Trimming damaged outer leaves during harvest is lowering case weights and overall yields at the field level
- Mildew and thrip/aphid damage are prevalent due to persistently high temperatures
- The presence of Impatiens Necrotic Spot Virus (INSV) and Sclerotinia has forced suppliers to cut ahead of their scheduled harvests to minimize crop loss
