The Export Price of Garlic Has Entered a Downward Period

In the two months before the Chinese traditional festival Spring Festival, China’s garlic market was relatively calm. The price remained at about $ 1050 per ton for general grade garlic.

“Before the Chinese Spring Festival, according to my estimates, the price of garlic is likely to increase slightly after the Spring Festival and then remain stable for about a month. The price began to fall slowly in late March. I did not expect that the emergence of special circumstances caused the price to advance It’s plummeting. It has caused huge losses to storage companies. ”
