Garlic (large size) from Shan State surged to K9,600 per viss in the Bayintnaung Wholesale Market on 20 October.
Similarly, Kyukok garlic imported from China also rose to K7,800 per viss, Ko Thein, a seller from Yetama Street told The Global New Light of Myanmar (GNLM).
The prevailing prices doubled compared to that of those registered in the year-ago period.
The prices stood at K3,200-4,100 per viss of Shan garlic and K5,200-5,300 per viss of Kyukok garlic in the post-Thingyan period. The prices hit a record high of K7,800-9,500 for Shan garlic and K8,200-8,300 for Kyukok garlic on 24 August. Then, the prices dipped to K8,600 for Shan garlic and K7,400 for Kyukok garlic. The prices have rebounded from 9 October.
At present, about 10,000 viss of garlic are flowing into the Yangon’s market daily.
Between 7 and 13 October, Myanmar exported 48 tonnes of garlic (approximately 30,000 visses) to Thailand via the Tachilek border.
Heavy rains at garlic harvest time affected the yield rate, a trader told the GNLM. This year, the onion price hit record highs in history. — TWA/KK
