LIVE FROM THE FIELDS: Desert Cold Snap
Watch a Markon Live from the Fields video about freezing temperatures causing production delays in the Arizona/California desert growing region.
- Temperatures in the low 30s have caused ice to form on various desert crops for the third consecutive morning
- Harvesting operations have been delayed two to three hours; loading delays have also occurred
- No immediate quality problems are present, but the industry will see epidermal blistering and peeling develop in lettuces over the coming days/weeks
- Markon inspectors are monitoring supplies closely and will update further as needed
Please contact your Markon customer service representative for more information.
