New Delhi (August 03,2023) : Consumers are facing the prospect of skyrocketing tomato prices, with reports suggesting that the cost of this essential vegetable may soon touch an unprecedented Rs. 300 per kilogram. This looming price surge is causing anxiety among households and raising concerns within the agricultural sector.

The surge in tomato prices can be attributed to a combination of factors, including supply constraints, unfavorable weather conditions, and transportation challenges. Experts are cautioning that the situation could lead to a potential crisis in the market. Given that tomatoes are a staple in Indian cuisine and extensively used in households across the nation, the sharp increase in prices could significantly impact household budgets and food expenses. Authorities and agricultural bodies are closely monitoring the situation, seeking ways to mitigate the impact on consumers and ensure a steady supply of tomatoes.
