Vegetables from four to forty rupees at Vegetable market
Vegetables being sold at 10 times prices at the Vegetable market! Is this a necessary evil? Is this a side effect of today's economy? Discuss the market strategies and market side effects over here.
During my recent visit to a village I came across with some farmers and got to know several matters about farming. A few of them I want to share here. Farmers are doing lot of expenditure to get a little return. However, they never get a profit of more than 20-25% as per their expectations. I went to a brinjal farm; the farmer said they're applying various kinds of pesticides to control but can't get rid from the insects in their farm; due to which more than 70kg brinjals are damaged out of 100kg production. The rest 30kg they sold in market at Rs. 4/-; whereas we're buying the same at Rs. 40/-. I can't understand where the money goes. Is it really such a huge benefit to the mediators/vendors in vegetables?
