LIVE FROM THE FIELDS: Continued Lettuce Ice in the Desert Region
View a Markon Live from the Fields video about the current cold snap in the Arizona/California desert growing region.
- Lettuce ice formed on desert crops for the third consecutive morning today
- Although the ice was not as severe as the previous two days, harvesting delays of two to three hours occurred
- Ice-related defects are already developing in lettuce crops; expect a decrease in yields and case weights over the next two weeks or more
- Quality and supply levels will be affected for at least the next three to four weeks
