Last month, the minimum export price (MEP) on onion was re-introduced at USD 300 per tonne barely three months after the previous government in March had abolished it. MEP is the rate below which no exports are allowed.

With monsoon playing truant and hoarding at its peak, vegetable prices have touched abnormal levels. Onion in particular has been a victim to this hoarding strategy raising question on the efficacy of India's agriculture distribution system.

It's been a tough six months for farmers across Maharashtra. Un-seasonal rains, hailstorm have led to fall in production. Farmers like Parashuram Khaire will get only 9/kg for his onion sold. But this is much less than the production cost.
