Tight supplies and elevated markets persist. Markon First Crop (MFC) Asparagus is available.


  • Northern Baja is the the primary growing region at this time
  • Strong winds and flooding caused by Hurricane Hilary have affected yields
    • Fields along the coast were hardest hit
    • Growers are working to cull scarred and bent stalks with damaged tips, further reducing volume
  • Expect markets to remain elevated for the next three to four weeks, at minimum; Central Mexican product will become more available at that time


  • Volume remains lower than normal due to an early onset of El Nino weather patterns
    • Supply levels are down as much as 40% year over year
    • A warm, dry winter preceded record heat, delaying or destroying crops
    • Massive precipitation events delivering annual totals in a matter of days forced many fields into regrowth and prevented marketability while also affecting logistics routes
  • Pricing is comparable to Mexican markets
