UPDATE: Garlic

February 07, 2020
Prices for domestic and imported garlic are rising, especially Chinese supplies. Volume is low; expect active markets for the coming months.
  • Chinese shipments to the U.S. are down significantly due to several factors:
    • Chinese New Year
    • Trade tariffs
    • Coronavirus
  • Demand has increased for other imported garlic (Mexico, Spain, and Argentina); overall import supplies are extremely tight
  • California‘s 2019 storage crop yield is below normal levels; stocks are adequate to cover normal demand but not significant increases
  • Supplies will continue to tighten over the next several weeks
  • Open-market prices will rise
