With the peak harvest season coming to an end, tomato prices have nearly doubled in the last one month to ₹20/kg. This year, it is feared, the harvest in Punjab and Haryana is will be lower due to chilly weather conditions that prevailed in the region in December and January.

This year, therefore, the prices may not go up very significantly, say market observers.
