DALIAN. In the Chinese growing regions, the harvest will start in the coming days and the farmers are in the middle of preparations. However, the shine skin growers in particular are facing various difficulties.

Production lower than expected

Shine skin prices remain high due to strong support from the domestic market. In most regions of the Chinese growing areas, the harvest will start in the coming days, but market players are already certain that production will probably be lower than hoped due to various difficulties. There were heavy storms with hail in some areas of Inner Mongolia, which damaged the local pumpkins and also sunflowers. Growers are very concerned about this, especially with regard to the production of organic pumpkin seeds.
