A lowering demand has brought down onion prices since the last week, sources say.
The price dropped from Ks1,700 per viss (1.6 kilograms) to Ks1,200 at the Pakokku wholesale market in Magway Region.
Although the supply had fallen, the prices did not seem to recover, said merchants.
“We have no order from border regions, like Myawady, Maungdaw. Most of the buyers come from Yangon and towns nearby,” said Kyaw Than, dealer at Pakokku.
Last month about 40,000 viss of onion had entered the market every day. Now the supply has dropped to 10,000 viss a day.
