Vegetables and Pulses Outlook: June 2012

by Suzanne Thornsbury and Alberto Jerardo

Outlook No. (VGS-350) 52 pp, June 2012

Prices at the point of first sale remain low for most fresh-market vegetables and consumer prices also fell in the first 5 months of 2012. Volumes are strong as mild winter and early spring temperatures allowed early planting in many areas. Per capita use of fresh-market vegetables fell less than 1 percent in 2011 compared to the previous year.
