Robert Bell with Western Onions said the Cuyama harvest continues on at 400,000 lbs. a day Sunday to Friday. “We will finish the first field Sept. 13, and then we will wait a few days until the next block is cured properly. About 7,000,000 lbs. of organics to go,” he said. “We have big size not by choice, but nature thinned crop here with a rain storm in March that dropped four inches in a couple of hours and washed out part of the field and thinned the remaining crop a little.”
Chris Woo with the Ontario, OR, Potandon Produce office said that Potandon co-packer Ray Farms in Glenville GA, has planted seed beds for transplants. Ray Farms has been experiencing wet weather, which the Ray brothers told Chris is welcomed. Ray Farms expects to plant the transplants beginning in December.
