LIVE FROM THE FIELDS: Santa Maria Strawberries

View a Markon Live from the Fields video about strawberries in Santa Maria, California.

  • Santa Maria strawberry growers are culling damaged berries after recent storms brought three to four inches of rain to the area
  • Light production has resumed and will increase over the next week or so
  • The Oxnard region received less rain and is further along with clean up and normal production
  • This week’s favorable weather is expected to promote growth and increase yields moving forward
  • Barring any unforeseen weather issues, April is shaping up to be a good month for strawberry quality and supply levels
