Tomato prices fall in Nigeria after Ebola disease

Tomato prices have fallen sharply across the country following rainfall across tomato-producing areas of the north.


Nigeria went through its worst tomato shortage this year as a result of a moth, popularly called Ebola, which invaded many farms. However, the moth does not survive during the rainy season, and so production has now risen once more. 

A basket of tomatoes that sold for for N40,000 in May now sells for N800 in Kaduna State.
