LIVE FROM THE FIELDS: Markon First Crop (MFC) Iceberg & Romaine Yields
View a Markon Live from the Fields video about this week’s high yielding MFC Iceberg and Romaine Lettuce in the desert region.
- Recent warm weather and weak consumer demand have contributed to the ongoing surplus of desert region row crops
- Case weights, quality, and yields for lettuce items have been above average all week
- Growers have bypassed many fields, but there remains an abundance of product that is at or slightly above peak maturity
- Cooler weather is forecast over the next several days
- Yields and quality are expected to remain above average at least through the week of January 22
