After an extended period of rising markets, prices have begun to show signs of relief. Expect supplies to continue remaining tight with higher-than-normal price levels.
- Weather challenges from Hurricane Kay have subsided, helping to fulfill the supply chain in the meantime
- Recent hot weather without nighttime cooling relief has reduced overall yields
- Sustained excessive heat has led to warmer-than-normal ground temperatures, slowed onion maturity, and increased thrip/pest pressure
- Expect supplies to remain very tight and markets to remain elevated through the month of October as Holiday demand is around the corner; Canada Thanksgiving Day is on October 10
