Vegetable prices jumped as much as 10 percent in major indian cities, including mumbai and delhi, as a four-day old strike by millions of farmers curtailed supplies.
Farmers began their 10-day protest on friday to press demands such as farm loan waivers and higher prices for produce such as cereals, oilseeds and milk.
"wholesale prices of some vegetables like tomatoes and french beans have risen due to lower supplies," said a mumbai-based vegetable vendor mahesh gupta.
