Garlic from China

Last week, I purchased asparagras, they were delicious. They were 1.99 a bunch, which is a deal! They were grown in Peru.
Today, I purchased a sack of garlic. 5 heads. Shipped from Brooklyn. When I got home, I looked on the other side of the label. Product of China.
Now, the simple math tells us that the garlic retailed for 20 cents a head.
Tonight, I'm wondering what kind of a profit the farmer in China made for his/ her labor.
