"There is no shortage of market, the traders are the ones who sell it," said farmer Budhathoki. 

According to him, the Tomato produced by the farmers of Myagdi has started being consumed outside the district as well. Budhathoki, who produces up to 70 quintals of tomatoes in a season from his agricultural firm, produces them in 3 modern greenhouses, 12 bass tunnels and sells them at wholesale prices to Benibazar traders.

Farmers of Myagdi, who used to sell up to 50 rupees per kg last year, said that this time they got double the price of Tomato. After the farmers got a good price in the field, the price reached 150 rupees per kg when it reached the consumer through the traders.
