21% of the respondents believe in the prospects for the growth of prices for potatoes by spring, despite critical low prices in Russia and record highs in Ukraine. Vegetable growers of the region also have a good assessment of growth prospects for onion prices – 19% of respondents believed that onion prices will rise by March more significantly than for all other types of fruits and vegetables. About 14% of the survey participants believe that the greatest prospects for price increases by March 2020 are for white cabbage.

But almost no one believes in the prospects for rising prices for beets and carrots. Only 2% of respondents believe that beet prices will rise more than other vegetables and fruits. Twice as many people believe in carrots, but also relatively few – only 4% of the survey participants.

At the moment, according to EastFruit, most of all in the Ukrainian market compared to last year, the price of an apple rose by 83%. Wholesale prices for potatoes are now higher than last year by 45%, but prices for onions have decreased by 54%, for carrots – by 60%, for beets – by 57% and for cabbage – by 44%.
