Argentina: Garlic harvest starts in San Juan

This week saw the start of the harvest of the purple garlic in the Valle de Tulum de San Juan in Argentina. At the same time the province of Calingasta prepares itself to bring in the harvest of the white, or common garlic. Even though no prices are known yet, the sector is optimistic.

Due to inflation however, prices are not likely to cover the costs. Bruno Perín warns for too much optimism: “People think China will drive up the price, but that is by no means certain. Europe installed quota and Mexico and the US pay fixed rates.”

This is a reality growers and exporters will have to deal with in the coming weeks. Some even say that the competitiveness of the Argentinean garlic needs to be re-evaluated. Last week a report on the "development of the technological bases for the Calingasta garlic," was issued by the Project INTA garlic.
