Like the start of its deal, Bedsole said Duda plans a two to three week overlap at the deal’s end with Michigan, which begins summer production in May.

The USDA in late October reported $6.35-7.50 for cartons of bunched 24s for Mexican crossings through California and from Oxnard, Calif.


L&M Cos., Raleigh, N.C., plans to begin shipments of its south Georgia broccoli Nov. 1.

The deal transitions to Palatka at the end of December and in early January.

L&M’s north Florida broccoli deal runs through the end of March and early April before shifting back to Georgia.

L&M has been growing Florida broccoli for six years, said Greg Cardamone, L&M’s general manager of eastern vegetables.
