From the harvest period for the winter-spring crop to August 2020, local people still traded in dried garlic normally.
After that, because the impact of Covid-19 pandemic on the tourism industry, the amount of un-consumed dried garlic was at 500 to 700 tons.
The Ly Son garlic price is currently at VND45,000-60,000 (nearly US$2 to US$2.6) per kilogram, being lower than the annual average. With the above- mentioned price, the local farmers felt unsatisfied with the sale to the market.
The Ly Son garlic was priced at the highest levels of up to VND140,000 or VND150,000 (US$6 to US$6.5) per kilogram in the same period of every year falling October, November and December.
