Melons can become more expensive on an annual basis

The summary of the agricultural portal mainly explains the increase in production costs and the decrease in the production area. Watermelons were grown domestically last year on 3,500 hectares, but this year on just 3,000 hectares, due to labor shortages and sales uncertainties. Rising production, transport and labor costs are also causing prices to rise. (MTI)
