In Poland, Chinese cabbage continues to rise in price rapidly, analysts of the EastFruit project report. The main factor for the new rise in prices in this segment was the limited supply of Chinese cabbage on the market. Chinese cabbage was affected by fungal diseases due to unfavorable weather conditions during the ripening period, and the plantations were also significantly affected by hail.
At the moment, wholesale prices for Chinese cabbage on the Polish market are $ 0.46-0.62/kg, which is on average 20% more expensive than at the end of the last working week.
Another factor in the growth of prices was the beginning of the off-season period: medium varieties of Chinese cabbage are gradually leaving the market, and harvesting of late ones is planned to start in early September. However, according to the growers, it is not worth hoping for a decrease in prices at the beginning of autumn. A slight decline is possible only at the beginning of the harvesting, after which the price will only rise. Today market participants are already concerned about the prospects of the Chinese cabbage harvest. Due to unfavorable weather conditions in the current season, its gross yield will be much lower than last year.
It should be noted that Chinese cabbage in Poland is already on average 33% more expensive today than in the same period last year. At the same time, most growers are planning to increase prices again next week.
