Indiana is at $400 and $420. I'm sure the Chinese economy isn't helping us right now. I'm still holding out for awhile. Don't have a lot but do have some good root to sell. I'd hate to sell it for that price.
Still at $400 dry here in south central Ky. I've talked to several other dealers and it's just not moving like it should due to China's reluctance to buy. I truly don't know what the outcome will be the next few weeks. It's anybody's guess.
$450 is a very good price for Ky. root. This is a much different year than the last few. Foreign economies have struggled and capital has been devalued. May the lower price will cut back on the harvest next year. Quality is much more important than quantity. Keep only the nice unbroken roots and put the others back in the ground and the price will go up.
A good example of this is an offer I got recently. An exporter said he could pay $525 to $575 for northern Indiana roots, but if he could pick half what I had he would pay as much as $800. I would never do that, but this is the way it is. I did not sell any roots to these guys, but use this scenario only as an example. Find a good and fair outlet for your roots and stay with it. You will be far ahead in the long run. Good luck everybody.
