According to East-Fruit, last week, potato prices fell almost everywhere except Moldova, while the situation on the carrot market was more stable. So, these products fell sharply in Georgia and Ukraine, but rose in price in Belarus. In other countries, carrot prices have hardly been revised.
Most actively during the reporting period, potatoes became cheaper in Ukraine. Here, manufacturers launched almost the entire country about the start of the harvesting campaign, and weekly prices fell by a third to $ 0,26-0,29 / kg.
A similar situation was also observed in Belarus, where the price of potatoes fell to $ 0,31-0,35 / kg. Potato fell in price both in Russia and on the Russian market at the end of the week, a fairly wide price range of $ 0,24-0,37 / kg was established.
The cheapest products were still offered in Poland. Here, local farmers were ready to sell potatoes already at $ 0,10-0,15 / kg.
Georgia and the countries of Central Asia were no exception, and potatoes of the 2020 harvest in these markets also declined in price. At the end of the week, Georgia could buy potatoes at $ 0,16-0,23 / kg, and in Uzbekistan prices fell to $ 0,25-0,29 / kg. The least active rate of price reduction was observed in Tajikistan, where potatoes fell only a few cents per kg to an average of $ 0,35 / kg.
Meanwhile, in Moldova the situation remained stable, and potatoes, as in the previous week, were offered at $ 0,29-0,35 / kg.
