    New Delhi/Nagpur: Rise in tomato prices is a “temporary phenomenon” and rates in the national capital region have started to cool down with increase in supply from Himachal Pradesh and Haryana, a top Agriculture Ministry official said today.

    Wholesale prices of tomato, which were ruling as high as Rs 60/kg in Azadpur Mandi two days back, today fell by up to Rs 20 per kg to Rs 40/kg, although retail prices are still ruling at Rs 50-80/kg depending on the quality and locality.

    “This is a lean season for tomato. The price rise is a temporary phenomenon and it will phase out soon. In Delhi, there is no issue as tomatoes from hilly areas have started arriving,” Agriculture Secretary Shobhana K Pattanayak told some news agency.
