ONION & GARLIC

The 2019 US onion crop harvest is now ~50% complete with 100% of acreage harvested in the Desert (Imperial Valley, Southern California) and Arizona. The organic harvest was also completed on time in late May. Yields from all these regions have come in slightly better than plan, driven by improved solids.

Market Report- Mar 2019

ONION & GARLIC

The 2019 US crop planting is 90 percent complete, and is estimated to come in 6 percent below last year. Solid rain during the past couple of months, and an above-normal snow pack has enabled the Department of Water Resources to announce water allocations at 55 percent. While no onion crop issues have been reported at this time, onion costs in California are continuing to rise due to the impact of the New Sustainable Groundwater Management Legislation, which affects grower costs, together with higher transportation, packaging and irradiation costs.

Availability of high visual color paprika and chili pepper in US will be limited in 2019, in addition to the limited overall inventory availability for US Paprika and Chili Peppers. Limited overall availability of Chinese Paprika and limited acreage in Peru may cause the prices to move up as we get into the summer months.
