Supplies in the Northwest are down again with total daily shipments well below 200 loads.
That is just 70% of just 2 weeks ago. Supplies are very manageable, but higher prices and fear of the potential the downside has many buyers staying away from the phone. Instead many are buying short to avoid any potential risk. NW supplies will be available for another 2-3 weeks; after which Southern Texas and Imperial Valley California will enter the market. Prices may spike up again between now and then, but only if there is significant rainfall in either of the two areas just mentioned.
Planting has just ended in the Northwest. This field E. Oregon will be ready for Harvest in Mid-August.
