Record onion produce this year

87

New Delhi: India’s onion production this year is likely to touch a record 95 lakh tonnes, but it may not result in a sharp fall in prices due to high investment costs involved, a top official said.

“Onion  output is estimated to be a record 95 lakh tonnes in 2009-10, compared to around 85 lakh tonnes last year,” Nasik-based National Horticulture Research and Deve-lopment Foundation (NHRDF) Additional Director Satish Bhonde said.
