Prices of imported onions at Hili Land Port in Dinajpur have dropped by Tk12-15 per kilogram over the last two days.
The imported onions were selling at Tk49-50 per kg just two days ago, but the price now stands between Tk34 and Tk38.
Onion importer Harun-Ur-Rashid told the Dhaka Tribune on Friday that the sharp fall in the import price has been an outcome of the increased supply of onions in markets.
“The prices of onions dropped twice in the last few days as the newly harvested Sukhsagor variety started arriving in markets,” he said.
Rabiul Islam, another trader, said prices of imported onions would be in the low trend as the newly harvested ones have started arriving in different states of India.
