Aungban tomatoes are seen at the market in Myothit Township of Magway District.

The tomatoes produced from Aungban of southern Shan State fetch good prices in Myothit Township of Magway District, according to a local merchant.
The six-wheel tomato trucks usually enter the municipal market of Myothit once every five days and the prices are also high. The tomato prices were between K700 and K1,000 per viss about two weeks ago and now the price becomes K1,400 per viss, said Ma Htay Oo, a tomato trader.
“We order the tomato from Aungban and so the number of tomatoes from other regions is fewer. Therefore, the prices rise and we get good prices. This is also because of high fuel prices in the transport sector,” she added. — Than Win Tun (IPRD)/GNLM
