Industry estimates on the size of the Texas spring crop won’t be available until December.

“I think we have at least 30-40% of our acreage in,” John McClung, manager of the South Texas Onion Committee, Mission, said in mid-October.

“That’s not from any kind of statistical sampling, but in talking to a few guys, I’d say we’ve got about 30-40% in.”

McClung said growers will have to switch to different varieties to accommodate the later planting this season, and it may limit supplies in the early and late season.
