Farmers in Seikpyu Township of Magway Region are selling their onions at attractive prices in early harvest.
A total of 30,000 viss of onions entered Seikpyu Wholesale Commodity Centre on 17 February, where the market price is K1,000 per viss this season although they had to sell their onions at K450 to 500 per viss last year amidst high costs for input items.
The local farmers grow onion plants near creeks and in the farms after harvesting monsoon crops.—Soe Lin Naing (IPRD) (Translated by Aung Khin)
