Onions from Karnataka have started arriving at the onion-potato market of the Agriculture Produce Market Committee (APMC). The fresh produce is being sold at Rs 8 to 9 per kg. According to traders, since farmers reduced the production of onion following a good crop, there is a possibility of little price rise.
Onion is grown in Maharashtra, Karnataka, Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh and other states. However, seeing the experience of COVID in the last two years, farmers have planted fewer onions this year. Onions are in demand but the available stock will only last for 20 to 25 days more and are being sold at Rs 14 to 15.
