The market is rising; supplies crossing through the Mexican border have decreased significantly.

  • Late-season quality issues including yellowing/off color, bolting, and higher insect pressure have reduced yields at the field level in Mexico
  • Value-added supplies will be particularly affected as high-grade sprouts are needed for processing and are increasingly rare at this time
  • Product will continue to cross from Mexico until California production begins:
    • The Oxnard start date has been pushed from early May to the end of the month as the cold winter limited vegetative growth
    • Salinas Valley production is slated to begin in July but could also be delayed one to two weeks if there isn’t a significant warming trend through late spring
  • Expect firm markets for the next 14-21 days as demand remains strong and supplies diminish
