Due to continuous rainfall in Kailali, Kanchanpur district, the local productivity of vegetables has decreased significantly, and the price of vegetables is increasing day by day.
Shivraj Joshi, who came to buy vegetables at Ramjan’s Sabzi Mandi located in Dhangadhi Sub-Metropolitan City-2, said that the price of vegetables has increased rapidly in the market. He estimates that the price of vegetables has increased since it started raining continuously. Vegetable traders say that due to the incessant rains for almost a week, vegetables from various places could not reach their destination. They said that the rain has reduced vegetable production.
It is difficult to get fresh vegetables in the market because the rains have not reached the market. In the vegetable market, green vegetables are being sold at Rs 140 per kg, cauliflower at Rs 120 per kg, potatoes at Rs 50 per kg, tomatoes at Rs 100 per kg, gourds at Rs 80 per kg and cucumbers at Rs 100 per kg.
