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
