GRAPHIC: Broccoli prices rise before weather problems

Broccoli volume was up from Mexico and California in the fourth quarter of 2021, but that didn’t cause prices to fall.

Shipping point and terminal market prices were higher than the previous two years, and so higher prices followed at retail, likely the result of higher input costs. And the beginning of 2022 sees weather problems in the desert limiting volume, causing prices to spike.

The following graphic was produced by Agtools Inc. BB #:355102, to give perspective on broccoli volume and price trends for the end of 2021.
