Live From the Fields: Markon First Crop Iceberg & Romaine

January 22, 2018 

View the above 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 forecasted over the next several days
  • Yields and quality are expected to remain above average at least through the week of January 22
