Maharashtra rainfall leads to soaring onion prices in OdishaFood and Supplies Minister Surya Narayan Patro explained last Monday how damage to onion crops in Maharashtra -due to excessive rainfall- have led to a gigantic upsurge of onion prices in Odisha market.
The average onion requirements of the state are about 70 to 80 thousand tonnes a month. The state however produces only 8 to 10 thousand tonnes, which makes it highly dependent on Maharashtra’s Nasik and neighbouring Andhra Pradesh to meet the needs. Production and prices of onions in these two states therefore always have a direct impact on the Odisha market, and currently there is a fall in supply from both the states.
An odishatv.com article made clear how officials have been directed to keep a close tab on the situation and to be on the lookout for traders hoarding the commodity.
