Mysuru: The effect of Coronavirus is being felt irrespective of sector.

The farmers who were till recently being pushed to the corner due to dip in prices of vegetables further, caused due to nationwide lockdown, felt another blow with tomato being crushed under the effect of virus.

The wholesale price of tomato touched a new low to Rs 1.50 per kg at APMC.

It’s a huge loss for the farmers as they were caught in a difficult situation. They could neither fetch a good price nor sell the same.
 
Unable to sell tomato for a better price, most of them are either disposing them according to their whims or using the same as a manure for the next crop.
 
They are staring at uncertainty as the nation is under lockdown till April 14.
