Throughout the country, a hike in the price of tomatoes has occurred. Where this red “fruit” cost ₹20 to ₹30 per kilogramme, it now costs around ₹80 to ₹120. This means that the prices have more than doubled all of a sudden.

This sudden price hike might make you wonder why the sudden price rise. Well, a major part of the reason for this price rise is the rain. The rain has made it significantly more difficult and has affected supply. Another reason is also the shortage of farming.

According to an article recently published by NDTV, significantly fewer tomato seeds were planted this year. The heatwave also ended up affecting the yield of tomatoes this year. All these factors compounded and led to a shortage in supply, which in turn led to an increase in prices.
