“I have spent Rs. 40,000 an acre for cultivating onion. There is no problem with the yield as we got 40 quintal per acre. Even if we sold the crop at Rs. 500 a quintal, the maximum price in the market, we will get only half of what we have spent,” one of the farmers said. The farmers said that the price of onion has been almost stagnant since the harvest of the last summer crop. “Onion prices had fallen back then. They have not picked up. The fall in price is mainly due to heavy imports. Our governments are always ready to suffocate domestic farmers to satisfy their imperialist masters,” said Amaranna Gudihal, the State secretary of KRRS.
