Nakhon Ratchasima suffers from high vegetable pricesSeptember 24th, 2008 - 2:02 pm ICT by Amrit Rashmisrisethi
Constant rainfalls have caused flooding in many cultivated areas in Nakhon Ratchasima province, which ultimately lead to shortage of agricultural produce and dramatic increase in prices.
Prices of most vegetables have gone doubled, and even tripled in certain types. Furthermore, due to decreasing supply of agricultural produce in the market, many vegetables have to be imported from Bangkok in order to meet the consumer demand.
Nakhon Ratchasima province is recognized as an agrarian state that has long been exporting agricultural goods to Bangkok and many provinces in the Northeast. Therefore, the recent supply shortage will continue raising the prices of vegetables even throughout the Vegetarian festival starting from the end of this September.
