Crop Update 3/15/17
Above average temperatures and heavy rains are producing a large and heavy crop of cabbage while the greens have been taking a little bit of a beating in the Texas valley.
If this heat and rain continue the crop could wind down a little quicker than typical, maybe ending as early as the first week of April on some of the items, like spinach and mustard greens.
Warm and very dry weather here is causing some concern with heavy bug pressure especially diamond back moths in the cabbage and greens crops.
Planting is on schedule for all commodites and greens production is approaching full activity with cabbage about 3 weeks away.
Sweet corn is planted and out of the ground but we are watching temperatures as they are approaching below freezing for tonight and tomorrow and it may affect the growth of the first two plantings.
