New harvest onion prices in Ukraine have dropped by almost 60%.
Today, one can buy quality onions from farmers in the country’s southern regions for UAH 2.5 ($0.09) per kilogram. The price of the vegetable in retail is a third higher.
At the same time, the average wholesale prices of onions in Ukraine this season are exactly 66.7% below those reported last year, that is, about UAH 7.5 ($0.28).
Now, Ukrainian onions are cheaper than those in Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan and Tajikistan. (UNIAN/Business World Magazine)
