According to official figures, the onion production reached 664,277 t,

an increase of 23 % or 125,000 t compared to the previous year. The average production of the past 4 years was exceeded by one third. This creates the conditions for a long supply of German onions, as demanded by the retail trade. An increased share of long-term storage supports this trend.
