However, due to supply disruptions of onions and tomatoes, its prices have also gone up. Estimates of estimates of yields of horticultural crops are also in doubt. According to the data released by the Union Ministry of Agriculture, the production of potato, onion and tomato in the country during the year 2019-20 is higher than the previous year (2018-19), while those associated with the business of these major vegetables believe that Potato stock in cold storage is much lower than last year. According to government figures, the total yield of potato for the current season was 5.13 million tonnes, marginally higher than last year. Uttar Pradesh, the largest potato producing state, produces more than 15 million tonnes of potatoes. But unseemly damage to the crop in the fields caused a huge loss, which has been wrong to estimate.
