LIVE FROM THE FIELDS: Lettuce Ice in Yuma, Arizona

View a Markon Live from the Fields video about lettuce ice in Yuma, Arizona.

Markon First Crop Premium Iceberg and Romaine Lettuce items are limited.

  • Lettuce ice has developed in many areas throughout the desert region for the past six days
  • Production delays of up to three hours have occurred as harvesting crews wait for lettuce and other crops to thaw
  • Despite ice over the last several mornings, quality remains very good
  • Case weights and yields are significantly lower than normal and expected to remain that way through late November

Please contact your Markon customer service representative for more information.
