That’s why tomato prices increased
Let us tell you that the price of tomato is around 80 to 90 rupees per kg in the retail market, but the prices have halved in the wholesale mandis. Tomato prices are seeing a rise in early November after more rains in southern states and rising prices of petrol and diesel. It is being told that most of the tomato supplies are coming from the southern states and due to the rains in these states, the crop has suffered a lot. Due to this, there is a jump in the prices of tomatoes. Another reason for this is that the demand for tomatoes has increased due to the wedding season, due to which the prices have increased. Due to unseasonal rains, the supply of tomatoes in the fields has been damaged as compared to the demand in the market.
