UPDATE: GREEN ONIONS

August 25, 2021

The green onion market is rapidly rising. Yields are down due to persistently elevated temperatures in Mexicali, Mexico.

  • Ready-Set-Serve Green Onions are available
  • Elevated daytime temperatures experienced over the past two months, combined with higher-than-average nighttime temperatures, have lowered yields and accelerated growth
    • High temperatures without nighttime cooling relief have led to warmer than normal ground temperatures
    • Rapid growth, combined with lower yields, are resulting in fewer harvestable onions in current fields
    • September temperatures are forecast to be moderate and closer to seasonal averages
  • Expect elevated markets for the next four weeks at minimum
