After decades of decline, Hungarian onion production has virtually ceased this year. János Fekete, president of the National Onion Product Council, told Magyar Nemzet that while twenty years ago onion cultivation in the Makó region was practiced on 1,500 to 2,000 hectares, this year only twenty to thirty hectares of onion area were cultivated in Makó.
