The price of artichokes climbed as producers collected them to make products and expand markets.

Due to the high price, many farmers in Thai Phien Village in Ward 12 have switched back to growing artichokes. Forecasts say that artichoke growing area in the next crop will rise by 10 percent compared to the previous crop, to cover around 45 hectares.
