CHRUDIM. The Czech blue poppy seed market has experienced massive price increases. The first official cultivation forecasts for the coming season are to be published in a few weeks.

Prices at a 4.5-year high

The turn of the month was accompanied by a massive increase in blue poppy seed prices on the Czech market. Hardly any goods are available, while market players are reporting persistently high demand. Many suppliers have already run out of stock and the few who still have blue poppy seeds are holding them back in order to push the price increase to the extreme. An estimated 4,000-5,000 mt of poppy seeds are still available on the Czech market for the coming months until the new crop will be available.
