Potato prices go through the roof,relief likely by next month.
As per reports,Uttar Pradesh has produced around 12.4 million tonnes of potato this year as against 15.5 million tonnes in 2019,a drop of 20%.
Agarwal said the rise in prices has brought some cheer to farmers. “Farmers of Uttar Pradesh had suffered for four consecutive years due to glut in production. They had to sell the crop at a price lower than cost of production,” he added.
