Update: Cilantro

March 14, 2017

The cilantro market is climbing; supplies are tightening. The Arizona desert season is winding down sooner than anticipated due to warmer-than-normal weather conditions. Demand is shifting to California and Mexico. Markon anticipates high prices; markets will reach first-tier trigger levels by early next week.    

  • Growing regions in California (Oxnard, Santa Maria, and Salinas) were heavily impacted by rain and cold weather last month, reducing yields and impacting quality
  • While warmer weather in California is expected to improve quality, heat in the desert region will reduce yields by causing yellowing/browning and increasing insect pressure
