  • 4. Why onion prices are so high  Farmer sells to trader for Rs. 20 per kg.  Trader sells to wholesaler for Rs. 30-80 per kg.
  • 5.  "It's a straight fact. Onion prices have gone up. Due to heavy rains, a lot of the crop is damaged," said Sharad Pawar, Union Agriculture Minister. "We cannot understand this price rise, because the arrivals are still alright. There are no reports of any major damage to the crops," said Sanjeev Chopra, MD, NAFED.
