For something so popular, lettuce is quite fickle and not easy to grow due to its intolerance to weather extremes.

Lettuce ask: Why aren't we growing more of it?

People in Georgia eat more than 285 million pounds of lettuce a year, but we grow less than one-tenth of 1% of that. If we met this local demand, it would mean an additional $83.6 million in revenue for farmers.

That's a lotta lettuce.

On average, Americans consume nearly 30 pounds of lettuce per person a year. Half prefer leaf, the other half head – but either way the salad-making machine delivers important nutrients, including vitamins A and C, potassium, calcium, iron and copper.
