Abnormally high temperatures received in the Northwest during last summer’s growing season reduced the onion crop size profile, leaving fewer of the size required to peel onions efficiently.
- The heat also reduced the quality of the overall crop, reducing the amount of time the onions would maintain their quality in storage
- Northwest storage supplies are on pace to be depleted sooner than normal (early to mid-April vs late April to early May)
- Markets are expected to remain elevated into May when production begins in the California desert growing region
