Within this marketing year first 2 months (Jul-Aug), Ukrainian onions export has jumped to 5,700 tons, up 17 times against last marketing year Jul-Aug, Ukrinform says referring to the EastFruit report.
«The export of onions from Ukraine within the first two months of the 201819 MY has exceeded last year similar by almost 17 times and amounted to 5,700 tons. This is also the heist amount within the recent marketing years for this period,» the report runs.
However, the experts admit it is still too early to talk about high prospects of exporting onions from Ukraine within the new marketing year: the matter is, the Ukrainian domestic market onions’ prices have started actively growing within the last week due to the South Ukrainian onions’ crop having had appeared to be relatively low this year. So, Ukrainian onions breeders now prefer to put into storage their high-quality onions, with no urgent sales to be made - as the onions’ breeders are sure that they will be able to sell their onions off at profitable prices as soon as winter begins.
