Big onion farmers in Matale gather harvest

Farmers in the Matale District are collecting harvests of their big onion cultivation these days.

About 3,500 acres of paddy lands have been used for cultivating onions in Dambulla, Kandalama, Sigiriya, Galewela, Dewahuwa, Naula and Pallepola this season. Over 59,000 metric tonnes of onions could be harvested this year, Officials said.

However, the yield has been low this time since fertilizers and seeds were not available on time for the cultivations, they said.
