Shandong Jinxiang garlic has entered the garlic digging season after the Labour Day. The new garlic is currently in the drying stage. The first batch of new garlic to South American orders have been exported in mid-May. The recent export market was introduced by a person in charge of an export company in Jinxiang County.
"In 2020, the garlic planting area will increase by about 20% compared with the previous season, and the quality of garlic will be better than in previous years. The yield per mu will increase by about 10% over last year. At present, the purchase price of half-dried space garlic in Jinxiang is about 1.5 yuan / jin, much lower than the same period garlic price 2019. "The person in charge also said.
When talking about the impact of the public crisis on garlic exports, the person in charge said, "Compared with South Asia and Southeast Asia, these markets are less affected by the public crisis, although affected by the public crisis, port closures in many countries have caused customers to pick up goods less quickly than usual, but it is reflected in the order. Our export volume has increased by more than 30% compared with previous years. "
"At present, we are still exporting large quantities of cold storage garlic to Southeast Asia and South Asia. The export China Garlic Price is about 500 US dollars / ton. Some South American importers have begun to purchase new garlic, but because the dryness of the new garlic is not enough, it is still in the drying period. We expect to start shipping at the end of May. ”The person in charge said :"Garlic is a necessary condiment for three meals a day. Foreign supermarkets have increased their demand compared to previous years due to the impact of the public crisis. Together with the good quality and low prices of fresh garlic this season, we expect the export volume to be better than last year. I understand that the output of South American garlic is not as good as in previous years, and the garlic in Brazil and Argentina has basically reached the end of the sales season, so I expect the demand in the South American market to remain high this season.
