Latest European Weather Affecting Crop Yield
As you may have seen recently on the news and weather channels, there has been extreme weather conditions across Europe. With snow hitting Greece and the rest of ‘sunny’ Europe this extreme weather is only to get worse. Weather stations are predicting ‘deadly snow’ to hit the rest of Europe and potentially make its way to the UK soon.
Unfortunately, this means that crop yields and quality are being affected. This can be seen with produce such as our iceberg lettuce which have seen shortages. This is due to the cold weather damaging the roots and ultimately the growth of the crop. The cold ultimately freezes the liquid in the plants meaning it is not receiving the moisture and nutrients required to grow properly.
We ask our customers to understand that not all produce will be at it’s finest quality due to such weather but know that we are working our hardest to bring you the best possible quality available.
