Potato prices fall on higher arrivals in Mumbai.

Prices of potato fell in Mumbai due to increase in arrivals. At Vashi market in Navi Mumbai, arrivals of potato were 110 trucks, each truck carrying 15-20 tn. Arrivals increased as the week-long transporters’ strike has ended. Potato was sold in the range of 1,200-1,600 rupees per 100 kg. In Delhi, potato prices were more or less stable in the range of 1,200-1,400 rupees per 100 kg even as arrivals rose to 131 trucks from 110 trucks on Friday. Prices of potato are likely to soften as supply of the new crop starts rising in the coming months.
