Due to rain and other
reasons, the price of vegetables in the market has increased and the price of
tomato has skyrocketed. This time tomato farmers and traders are holding hands.
Thus farmers are paying more attention to tomato crop and are earning good income.
A police officer of Hassan

Bairesh of Bastihalli

six gunta land and has earned more than expected income. It is said that
Bairesh earned an income of 20 lakh rupees from the tomato crop including the
days of tomato price hike.
Despite the pressure of
government police work, Bairesh, who has earned millions of rupees by
cultivating good crops, is expecting to grow another thousand boxes of
tomatoes. Even the land of Bairesh, who is now a policeman, has not been spared
Recently, one day thieves
broke into Bairesh's farm and stole more than a hundred boxes of tomatoes.
After that Bairesh woke up and guarded the field overnight and saved Tomoto.
Inspite of lack of rain, diseases and thieves, Byresh has grown tomatoes and
earned a huge income, district and inter-district traders are buying tomatoes
from him. As the price of tomatoes increases, the number of thieves in the
farmers' fields also increases. A similar incident happened in Hassan recently.
