Spain: Frosts reduce lettuce production volume in Murcia and Almeria
Besides these adverse weather conditions for leaf vegetables, there has also been a drop in the exports of iceberg lettuce. According to Proexport records, its associated companies have exported 14.36% less in week 47 of the current campaign compared to the previous one.
According to those responsible for the production in the plantations affected, the low temperatures registered, together with some strong wings reaching 40 to 50 km/h, will affect the production in the coming days, causing the plants to dehydrate and lose leaf mass.
In order to maintain the quality standards that help the companies under Proexport stand out, the Technical Department of said association has recommended marketing only good quality products in order to avoid rejections and costly claims.
This weather situation will last for a few more days, as the weather forecast warns that temperatures will remain low in the different producing areas this week (Torre Pacheco 6-8 ºC, Águilas: 7-8 ºC, Lorca: 1-4 ºC and Pulpí 3-6 ºC).
