Cold Weather Delays Harvesting Time- Earl’s Buyer’s Notes January 6th

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Plants can be severely damaged if harvested before they thaw out so growers will need to wait to harvest until late morning. Most of the wet vegetable items that are grown in the desert can take quite low temperatures and will recover even when frozen. The cold weather reduces the number of hours they can harvest a day. The cold weather is preventing many farm workers from getting out in the fields early to pick. They are waiting until the weather warms up later in the morning which is affecting the amount of produce harvested. Due to the recent cold weather some growers in Coachella couldn’t even go into the fields to pick, losing a day of harvesting. Read the full weather update below.
