The green onion market continues to rise rapidly. Persistently elevated temperatures are leading to low yields in the primary growing region of Mexicali, Mexico.

  • Hot weather without nighttime cooling relief has led to warmer-than-normal ground temperatures, increasing thrip/pest pressure and reduced yields
  • Extreme monsoonal pressure (hot, humid, stormy, and windy weather) has brought with it even tougher growing conditions
  • Increased inspections at the Southern U.S. border have caused delays in border crossing times, further hampering inbound supplies
  • Rapid growth combined with lower yields have limited harvestable onions; planting/cutting ahead risks affecting winter production
  • Expect elevated markets through mid-September
