Weather Continues to Decrease Broccoli Yields

September 20, 2017

Prices remain elevated. Heat earlier this month in the Salinas Valley and inconsistent weather patterns in Mexico continue to decrease yields; supplies are limited.

  • Markon First Crop Broccoli Crowns are sporadic; Markon Best Available and packer label are being substituted as necessary
  • Commodity and value-added packs may exhibit decreased shelf-life over the next several weeks
  • Expect the market to remain in a demand-exceeds-supply situation through the end of the Salinas season (late November/early December)
  • Second tier trigger levels may be met by next week
