Aklan reports stable prices for fruits, rootcrops, vegetables; marine products unpredictable

by Venus G. Villanueva

Kalibo, Aklan (17 November) -- Prices of root crops, fruits and vegetable in abundant supply in the market remain stable, but the prices of fish and marine products are unpredictable owing to the supply/demand principle.

This is the latest assessment on the status of prices and supplies of agricultural products in Aklan as reported for the month of October by the Office of the Provincial Agriculturist (OPA) here headed by OIC William Castillo.

Because of frequent rains, OPA has also noted that prices of ampalaya and eggplant increased slightly due to low supply in the market. The low supply was caused by damages on these vulnerable vegetables.

Prices of meat and poultry and poultry by-products remain stable, comparable to previous week's prevailing price trends, according to the report.

Cabbage, Sayote, and carrots which are not planted in Aklan but highly in-demand in Boracay Island and in Kalibo which are hosting many resorts and restaurants also increased in prices. Onions, Irish Potato and sweet potato also increased in prices.

OPA also regularly monitors prices of rice, livestock and poultry products, feeds, sugar, corn, dried fish and fertilizer. (PIA) [top]
