Onion prices stir up trouble ahead of state elections

Postby St John Smythe » Fri Feb 08, 2013 9:44 am

Onion prices have climbed sharply following a drought, a worry for the government as it heads into state elections that have been known to turn on the cost of the vegetable.

Prices have more than doubled in the last three months and no respite is in sight. Supplies remain tight as low rainfall has cut sowing and curtailed growth of individual bulbs.
