Rick Antle, president of Tanimura & Antle Inc., said the company’s consolidation of its grower base and shifting production to the northern end of the Salinas Valley has boosted leafy green quality and demand for the company’s products.

“We’ve expanded our crop plan,” Antle said.

The lettuce also started late for the company, Antle said, and the cooler weather with some rain may cause a few quality issues.
