Vegetables and Pulses Outlook: March 2012

Outlook No. (VGS-349) 38 pp, March 2012
Fresh-market vegetable supplies remain strong, pushing prices lower for most crops.
Market impacts from an early-year freeze in parts of Florida were minimal as production
was still largely in southern parts of the State. In 2011 (the first year of data availability)
organic fresh vegetable exports were less than 10 percent of trade in conventional
production on average. Shares were notably higher in onion sets, carrots and spinach.
Value of both imports and exports of all fresh vegetables increased in 2011, although
trade volume slowed somewhat in early 2012.
