Row Crops

Dear Ole Tyme Customers,

UPDATE: Row crop supplies the next couple weeks will be worse off as the Salinas season comes to an end. We now are seeing product in all areas so trucks may need to load in Salinas and Huron or Huron and Yuma, etc. All areas are struggling to keep up with demand as supplies continue to get worse as we approach transition. Yuma has started slowly this week with more items starting next week.


  1. All row crop suppliers will be watching extreme averages (and a % of averages) to get through the supply situation.
  2. All items will have substandard quality from the heat and rain (INSV & Fusarium).
    • Internal burn, discoloration, misshapen heads common defects reported on the lettuce, romaine and green leaf.
    • Pin Rot is being reported on the Broccoli
    • Mold and discoloration are being reported on the Cauliflower.
  1. Expect these markets to continue to stay high until we get to Yuma.

If you have any questions, please reach out to your Sales Representative.
