He said that as the intensity of heat decreases, special attention should be paid to the production of chicken and eggs. Besides, the market may go beyond the reach of buyers in the long term. Worryingly, if smallholder farmers are unable to return to production, market volatility will increase.

The spice market is on the rise

A spice market surrounds the sacrifice in front. Onion, garlic and ginger prices are seen slightly higher than this time last year. Although there is an opportunity to import onions from India, importers are not showing much interest due to high prices. It does not have a big impact on the price of onions in the country’s market. In particular, onion prices have fallen by Rs 5 per kg in the last week. Now desi onions are being sold at 65 to 70 taka per kg.
