Manioc price hike benefitting traders

Villagers who grow manioc in their home gardens earn an extra income due to the increase of prices of manioc. Manioc traders say the major reason for this price hike is the higher prices of vegetables.

There is an increase in the sale of manioc in Ampara brought from Moneragala.

At present, a kilo of manioc is sold at Rs. 30 to Rs. 50. The prices of beans, cabbage, beetroot, carrot, leaks and root crops are around Rs.100 to Rs.180 per kilo.

The prices of ladies fingers, brinjals, bitter gourd, long bean, snake gourd and tomato which were around Rs. 150 to 180 per kilo, have come down to Rs. 80 to Rs. 100 per kilo.

Vegetables being transported from Nuwara Eliya, Welimada and Dambulla Dedicated Economic Centre to Ampara are being sold on the wayside at Akkaraipattu and Addalaichenai.
