View a Markon Live from the Fields video about current iceberg quality in the Arizona/California desert growing region.
- Rainfall earlier this week has caused quality issues such as bottom rot, dense texture, large size, and weak tip to develop
- Current case weights and head density are higher than normal
- Many crops are already 10 to 14 days ahead of schedule; the rain has only further accelerate growth
- Growers must manage raw product supplies carefully in order to have enough to last through the rest of the season
