Decline in big onion demand

The demand for big onions has dwindled during the past few years. Previously, over 40 percent of the demand had been catered to with local big onion harvests and the Matale District was the hub for the product about four years ago.

Furthermore, over 5,000 hectares of land in Matale had been utilised for big onion cultivation during that period. However, at present, the cultivation area has dwindled to less than 450 hectares.
