The garlic in Henan's early maturing production area has entered the picking season for more than a week. The frost weather has not seriously affected the garlic harvest. The early-ripening garlic is currently being harvested, and the late-ripening garlic begins to be harvested about a week later. Regarding the harvest of garlic this season and the recent export market, Mr. Zhang accepted an interview with FRESH PLAZA. "The garlic planting area in Shandong production areas this season has increased by 10% -15% compared with the previous season, and the size of garlic is much larger than in previous years. The yield per mu has increased by nearly 10% compared to the previous season. This is mainly due to the careful cultivation and management of garlic farmers this season, hoping to maintain the quality of garlic and continue the high prices of the previous season. Manager Zhang said, "However, the increase in the planting area and the yield per mu has led to an oversupply of garlic in the market and lower Garlic Price. Compared with the price of 1.7-2.0 yuan / jin at the beginning of last year's harvest season, garlic price 2020 of new garlic is only 0.6-0.7 yuan / jin, and the price after baking is only 1.2 yuan / jin. In addition to new garlic, the price of old garlic has also fallen recently, from about 3.5 yuan / kg in early April to about 1.6 yuan / kg this week. "
"For export, because new garlic needs to be dried after harvesting, we have not started to accept new garlic orders. The export of new garlic is expected to officially start from the end of May. At the end of April, we have stopped the shipment of old garlic." Zhang The manager said, “In the first two months, the demand in Europe has increased sporadically. Some customers in the Russian region have chosen to pay higher land transportation in order to pick up the goods as soon as possible. After a few weeks of concentrated exports, the current European market It is relatively stable. But I expect China Garlic Price to be very low this year. "
When talking about the impact of Spanish garlic, which has also entered the harvest season, on China's garlic exports, Manager Zhang said, "Chinese garlic is the most in the world, no matter in terms of planting area or output, it is not comparable to other countries. Spain Garlic may only affect the market in the short term, and the scope of influence is limited. Therefore, the market of the international garlic market mainly depends on the trend of the garlic market in China. In particular, the price of garlic in China is lower than other countries, so it has more advantages in trade. "
