Demand for green onions remains strong, far exceeding supply. Industry volume is down 50-70%

  • A thunderstorm storm in the primary growing region of Mexicali, Mexico has led to widespread power outages, flooded fields, and hail damaged product
  • Harvesting is being slowed down due to muddy and wet fields conditions
  • Onions will require extra time to dry before packing; wet onions will be soft and may develop rot and decay
  • Loading and transferring product across the border will continue to be delayed
  • Expect markets to climb and remain elevated through October, pending additional extreme conditions
