Growing lettuce in the arid climate of Arizona can be a challenge.
“Lettuce needs to be dried and chopped, but the hard part is when you’re going to put it on a salad,” says Mary Lynn Young, an agronomist at Bloomberg Farms, which grows lettuce for food companies such as Walmart.
“I don’t know if it can grow in the winter.
There’s no way to keep it alive that long.”
Growing lettuce on the aridia, or arid plains, is a challenge too.
The plant needs to survive the harsh arid conditions in Arizona, which is one of the driest places in the US.
“They’re so arid that they can’t really grow anything except lettuce,” says Young.
“If you don’t get those things right, it’s very difficult to grow a lettuce.” “
The lettuce that grows at Bloomburg Farms is grown on a grid that mimics the landscape of a small, semi-arid town. “

Each year, growers use a different kind of soil to help the lettuce grow.
“We use a soil that is a mix of sand and clay,” Young explains.
“And that is what the plants are going to grow on.”
Growing on the grid The first step is to determine the right mix of nutrients.
Young says there are three main types of nutrients that growers can use: water, fertilizer and compost.
“Water is the easiest.
You don’t need a lot of it,” Young says.
It takes a couple of days for the plant, which needs to grow up to 1 metre, to be fully mature.” “
Fertilizer is very important because you want to get the plant to grow quickly.

“The next step is that you need to give it a good mix of compost.
There are three types of compost that you can use, and you want a mix that is both rich and low in nutrients,” Young continues.
“Some of them are more acidic than others.”
“If we’re doing a lot more fertilizer than we need, then the plants will die, and we’re going into a problem.”
The third type of fertilizer is called “green manure”.
Young says the nutrients that plants require will be concentrated in the leaves, which will take longer to get into the plants.
In this case, the plants won’t be able to get enough nutrients from the soil.
This can lead to the plants dying, but it is an option, Young says, if the nutrients are concentrated in certain areas.
“There are certain plants that are so important in this country that you’re not going to use them in a lot if you want the plant in a healthy condition,” she says.
Growers also use fertilizers to help with water and fertilize the plants, but Young says that is an expensive option.
“A lot of these growers are very careful about where they put their fertilizer,” she explains.
When it comes to fertilizing, “there’s a lot going on”, Young says of fertilizers.
“Green manure” fertilizer Young says growers sometimes use compost to add nutrients to the soil, which helps keep it moist and keep the plants from getting too thirsty. “
But it’s not going anywhere because the plants don’t want to grow.”

“Green-mitigation compost” is another way to get nutrients to plants.
Young uses this type of soil, but also says it can be used in conjunction with compost, too.
“One of the biggest challenges growers have is the nutrients, and they’re very concentrated in that area,” she continues.
Growing lettuce for a profit Growing lettuce can be challenging.
“The first thing we have to do is make sure we get the proper water to grow this lettuce,” Young recalls.
Then we add in some compost, but then the plant doesn’t want it because it doesn’t need it.” “
Then we need to fertilize it with something like a fertilizer or some kind of green manure.

“You have to figure out where the nutrients go and then use the right kind of fertilizer for that,” Young adds.
“Sometimes, when you go to the garden and put the lettuce, the plant will not take it, but you can try to grow it and see how it works.”
Young says when growing lettuce on a garden grid, it is a “good idea to make a grid, because you can make sure
