Uzbekistan may substantially expand early cabbage acreage

Uzbek vegetable growers are poised to substantially expand the area planted with early cabbage. Growers are encouraged by the high profitability of cabbage exports in 2021, particularly by the record cabbage prices in Russia at this point in time.

As Uzbek vegetable growers made good money on the supply of early cabbage to the markets of Russia, Belarus, Ukraine and Kazakhstan in spring 2021 due to cold weather and the later ripening of cabbage in Eastern Europe, they already had plans to expand the area this year.

However, after Russia continued to import cabbage even during its own harvest, as well as after a sharp rise in prices and demand for cabbage in Russia in late November-early December 2021, Uzbek growers decided to further expand the area planted with this crop.

If Uzbekistan exports 100,000 tons of white cabbage in 2021, it will enter the top five world leaders in terms of white cabbage exports, after China, Mexico, the United States and the Netherlands.
