The new season of garlic has already begun to be harvested, and some farmers have even begun to dry them. This season, the size of garlic is large, and the proportion of garlic above 5.5cm+ is nearly high. The recent dry weather in the Shandong production area is conducive to drying the harvested garlic.
Sales Manager Damon first introduced the current situation of production areas, "At present, Shandong garlic in the main production area has gradually started to harvest. The earliest batch of Shandong garlic farmers has completed the harvest and began to dry the garlic.
Compared with the rainy and cloudy weather in the production area during the harvest last year, the weather during May is expected to be mainly sunny, which is excellent news for garlic harvesting and drying. "As of now, this season's garlic is growing well, with a large size and good quality. The proportion of garlic of 5.5cm+ in this season generally exceeds 70%, and some high-quality farmlands even reach 90%, so garlic's size and price difference this year will be much smaller than last year's." Damon said.
According to Damon, bulk red garlic is expected to be exported at the end of May, and the harvest season and export time of white garlic is expected to be about 10 days later than that of red garlic. When discussing the expectations for the new season of garlic exports, Damon said, "Based on the current situation, I predict that the price of red garlic in bulk FOB Qingdao will be about 700-800 US dollars. The recent sea freight is relatively stable, and there will be no significant increase in the short term. This season's garlic price is expected to be lower, which will greatly promote the export of Chinese garlic, which also makes us look forward to the new garlic season. "
