Farmers upset as price of tomatoes falls drastically in Kurnool
Tomato farmers are once again in a state of woe, as the price of this ubiquitous berry has fallen to an all time low. It is fetching Re. 1 per kg, in Pattikonda market in Kurnool district. The farmers have stated that after paying the agent's commission and auto fares, they have nothing left to pay the labourers. They have to pay this from their own pockets, they deplored. This year, tomato crop was destroyed in heavy rains during the rainy season. Whatever little crop survived the weather conditions was brought to the market. But this did not fetch much to the farmers.
