Newly harvested Moldovan onions: Prices dropping due to quality problems

Moldovan growers are trying to complete the onion harvest as soon as possible. They claim that due to rains in spring and summer and issues with the protection of crops, a large share of the onion harvest is of low quality. Now, many vegetable growers consider it a good option to sell potentially problematic onions immediately after harvesting.

As a result of the large supply of onions of low and average quality, their prices have started to slightly decrease last week – on average, to 3.5 MDL/kg ($0.2/kg). However, this is still higher than the average price level at the beginning of the last decade of September last year ($0.18/kg).

Industry experts now agree there is a “window of opportunity” for the export of Moldovan onions to the Ukrainian market. A price difference of about $0.06/kg for some Moldovan vegetable growers-traders may be a sufficient motivation to start the supply.
