Garlic production: Is it profitable? How long it takes?

Who is the largest producer of garlic?

Globally, China is by far the largest producer of garlic, accounting for 2/3 of the world total, with 468.8 million kg in 2016.

The United States ranks 11th in total garlic production. China, India and Bangladesh are the world leaders in garlic production.

How much garlic can be grown on an acre?

High yields can be over €15,000 per acre. Average yield will be in the range of 10,000 to 12,000 pounds per acre, depending on variety, management, and environmental conditions.

An estimated return price of €0.25 per kg of garlic is used in this study.

Where is the most garlic produced?

The two most prevalent varieties grown commercially are California Early and California Late.

Dehydrated garlic accounts for approximately 75% of garlic consumption in the United States. The main importers of garlic in the United States are China, Mexico and Argentina.

Is garlic farming profitable?

Yes, because the price of gourmet garlic varieties is so high and the yield of intensive planting can reach €4-5/kg per square meter of cultivation area. Plus, value-added garlic products can easily double your profits.

However, less developed countries like China or India are causing the price of garlic to fall.

Therefore, it is less and less profitable to produce garlic in Spain.

How long does it take to grow garlic?

Plantation and climate. When grown under the right conditions, garlic typically takes nine months to mature. Garlic grows best when it gets at least six hours of sun a day. Plant garlic in the fall; three to eight weeks before the first frost.

How much is garlic sold for?

Elephant garlic, for example, routinely sells for around €1.5/kg. You can produce around €8 per square meter of growing area. So let’s do the math. If you want to earn €40,000, and you are selling the garlic at €1.5/kg, then you need enough space to produce around 26,600 kg of garlic.
