These potatoes from Aungban are currently entering the Mandalay market daily and are being sold at good prices.

The potatoes, grown in Aungban township, are entered the Thirimalar wholesale market in Mandalay and the potato market has performed significantly better than the last.
The potato growers are happy as they are getting good prices, according to the potato commodity depot.
About 20 trucks of potato from Aungban township are daily entered the Thirimalar wholesale market in Mandalay. The prices are getting better than before. In the past two weeks, the price of potatoes has peaked at K700 to K1,200 per viss. Currently, the average market price of potato is ranging K1,700-K1,800 per viss, increasing about ten times, said U Aung Moe Naing, an owner of Aung commodity depot in Mandalay.
“Currently, potatoes, grown mainly in Aungban township are entering the market. The potatoes from the rest of the region haven’t yet entered the market. The growers are not cultivating the potato this year because they suffered a loss last year. Thus, the acre of potato cultivation has been dropped by half. As the result, potato prices are hiking in the market. The rising of fuel oil prices for transportation is another reason for the rambling price of potatoes. Besides, people have been buying potatoes to keep in their houses since the outbreak of the pandemic, he added.
These potatoes from Aungban are currently entering the Mandalay market daily and are being sold at good prices. Besides, other raw vegetables such as cabbages, cauliflowers and cucumber are also having a good prices. At present, around 50 or 70 trucks loaded with raw vegetables are entering the market daily. — Min Htet Aung (Mdy Sub-Printing House)/GNLM
