Due to the poor storage conditions and heavy rain in August, the temperature plummeted, and some onions in Gansu Province have been damaged and gone rotten. Due to the expansion of planting areas, the onion market took a downturn in August. When the farmers were not willing sell, the onions were stored but many were damaged by the moist atmosphere.
The onion production this year has been reduced by about 20% compared to previous years. Nowadays, the price is low and the storage cost is high. As the climate is cooling down, and the trade costs of growers and storage companies are high. Due to long-term storage, peeling and rot were observed in the onions stored in the package.
