This is the rate of potato
Let us inform that the price of potato has also come down significantly in Uttar Pradesh. Farmers are forced to sell potatoes at throwaway prices. In such a situation, the farmers are facing loss. To avoid losses, many farmers threw potatoes on the streets instead of selling them in the market. However, the state government has announced to buy potatoes at the rate of Rs 650 per quintal. Despite this, the farmer is not happy. At the same time, many farmers have started keeping potatoes inside the cold store, so that they can sell it when the rate improves. The special thing is that now there is a shortage of space even inside the cold store. In such a situation, the farmers are stumbling door to door.
