Onions fell again in Russia


Onions fell again in Russia

09/02/2020

Russian farmers are currently getting rid of mainly onions, which cannot be stored for a long time due to certain quality parameters.

According to the daily monitoring of the EastFruit project, onion prices in Russia began to decline again under the pressure of growing supply. Note that farmers are currently getting rid of mainly onions, which are not subject to long-term storage due to certain quality parameters. However, being dissatisfied with the prices for these products, they try to put most of the onions in storage.

So, today the price of onions in the Russian market is announced by producers within the range of 7-12 rubles / kg ($ 0.10-0.16 / kg), which is on average 27% cheaper than at the end of the last working week.

In this way, farmers are trying to intensify sales of onions, but more often than not they do not see much of a result. At the same time, onion harvesting is already in full swing in many farms and producers, by and large, do not know what to do with the harvest: sell at current low prices or put them in storage in the hope that these products will rise in price by winter.

Today, onions in Russia are already on average 16% cheaper than in the same period last year. At the same time, market analysts note that there are no prospects for improving the market situation yet.
