Farmers being forced to throw away their potato produce due to less demand

Sharing is Caring

Agra, Dec 19 (ANI): Cold storage owners dumped potato stock as farmers did not turn up to take away their produce in Agra. The production coast being high but demand being less to lower market rates is said to be the main reason for farmers not turning up. The cold storage manager Harendra Kumar said farmers are not coming to take their potato produce, as demand is less but stock was bumper. They have to clear old stock as new season is coming and repair work needs to be done. Meanwhile, most of the cold storage units operating in the district have switched off their preservation machines to save on electricity expenses.
