    • Dry scale and translucent layers will begin to challenge pack-outs as April approaches
    • Expect elevated prices for the rest of the season
  • Mexican onions will start entering the U.S. (into South Texas) by late January
    • With the Northwest markets at all-time highs, Mexican onion prices are expected to follow suit
