Crop plantings are ‘enormous’ says Mr Poole, regarding GWS pumpkin seeds, following a terrible crop last year. We are likely to see good, cheaper prices for new crop, possibly a $1000 cheaper for both GWS and shineskin. But it won’t reach the UK until November time because of the cold weather affecting the crop.
Alex also talks about the relationship between ochratoxin and pumpkin seed varieties, and just how much of an issue it is.
There is still a bit of uncertainty and volatility, but the price hearing for new crop regarding speculative offers is pretty keen; it’s worth booking something!
