According to the heraldo.mx website, despite the high quality and yield of white garlic this year, the local market is in a state of uncertainty because of high production in China of this variety of garlic.
The problem is that the domestic market is in difficulty to form its marketing price. The reason is an increase in the production of garlic in China and an increase in its exports.
Since almost all of the world’s garlic production is in China, domestic markets will be waiting the establishment of international prices. It is expected in this June.
80% of white garlic in Mexico is harvested in Aguascalientes state. And his producers are concerned that they want to export white garlic, but they can’t predict prices in the world.
The situation is aggravated by the fact that in different growing areas were lost from 35 to 80% of the crop “marble” garlic because of the intense heat. Such losses are very destructive for the industry and the economy of the country.
Manufacturers of “marble” garlic have reason for concern since this happened two years ago in the cities Rincón de Romos, Tepezalá, Asientos, Pabellón de Arteaga (although at that time, harwest losses occurred because of heavy rain).
Mexico is waiting for the end of this month to determine international prices and needs of the country. While Aguascalientes will explore the domestic market in order to sell their harvest.
