Steps underway to rescue unique Ixil onions from Yucatan

In all of Mexico, just 15 families are dedicated to the production and cultivation of Ixil onions. As this number is quite low, the Ministry of Rural Development of Yucatan started a rescue program in November 2021. The price of the crop was plummeting, and the producers no longer found it profitable to harvest onions, so they preferred to plant other crops. That is why the secretariat approached the farmers and the Ixil City Council to ensure that the onion remained in the region.

Promoting the onion at different points of sale and holding meetings with the producers to increase the harvest, they have managed to currently cost 70 pesos per kilo of onions from Ixil, however, it is not enough for the total benefit of the families of the region. And the price will increase until it reaches 120 pesos a kilo.
