LIVE FROM THE FIELDS: Huron Iceberg Lettuce

View a Markon Live from the Fields video about iceberg lettuce in Huron, California.

  • Iceberg lettuce production has begun in the Huron, California growing region
  • Abnormally cold temperatures in late February caused plant growth to slow significantly; ice-related quality issues also developed
  • Yields and case weights are low, but internal quality is very good
  • A major rain event caused growers to cancel harvests over the last two days, but production is set to resume over the weekend
  • Markon inspectors are monitoring supplies for all weather-related issues
