This week, prices for greenhouse cucumbers in Ukraine have gone up sharply. Due to the rainy and cold weather, cucumber deliveries from Ukrainian farms of all categories have significantly dropped. At the same time, the supply of open-field vegetables fell to a minimum this week, with most producers having finished the sale of open-ground cucumbers.
As a result, today, there is a shortage of cucumbers on the market in Ukraine. Meanwhile, the demand for cucumber remains quite high. In the current conditions, the greenhouses were able to raise the price of their products, and greenhouse cucumbers are now offered at UAH 35-45/kg ($0.96-1.23/kg), which is, on average, 34% more expensive than a week earlier.
