Rain Causes Harvest Disruptions

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Rain hit Northern California hard this past week, especially in the Salinas and Watsonville growing region, with heavy rain returning Sunday and Monday. Generally, for known weather events like this, growers will try to pick as much as they can prior but that is of course limited by time and labor. We will see lower volume on row crops such as broccoli, cauliflower, and leaf lettuces. The rain is expected to knock out most of the strawberry production in Watsonville and Salinas. We can expect harvest delays due to wet fields, possible post-harvest quality issues and even logistics snafus.  Prices will go up substantially based on lack of supply.
