Baja Son Growers, Salinas, will have expanded supplies of asparagus from Central Mexico this summer.

The company began harvest on May 1, and supplies are increasing, and the company is encouraging buyers to take advantages of ad opportunities in June, according to a news release.

“With increased acreage out of Central Mexico, we will be able to handle more ad opportunities than we have in previous seasons,” Robert Leonard, director of sales, said in the release.

The company will be able to ship two million boxes of asparagus each season with new plantings in Baja and Caborca.

Baja Son Growers also grows and packs two million cases of conventional green onions and 250,000 cases of organic green onions, according to the release.

Leonard said the company plans on increasing green onion volumes by 5-8% a year for the next five years, and asparagus 10-15 annually for the next five years.

The company introduced a new website this year at www.bajasongrowers.com, featuring product details and farming information, to connect with and educate customers and consumers, according to the release.
