Before Kyukok garlic prices arranged between K16,000 and K17,000 per viss and Shan Aungpan garlic prices to between K12,000 and K15,000 per viss on 3 November, the prices of Chinese potatoes, Kyukok garlic, and Shan Aungpan garlic were K1,700, K7,800, and between K8,400 and K9,800 respectively on 26 October. The price of Kyukok garlic stood at between K15,000 and K15,500 on 11 November while the prices of Shan Aungpan garlic had been between K11,000 and K12,500 during the period of 4 to 11 November.

Despite the higher prices, the demand for garlic is not high as consumption of garlic in Myanmar cooking recipes is normally low. — TWA/TH
