According to farmers and common people, the reason behind significant surge in the prices of wheat is its small scale cultivation.

Instead of wheat, people cultivated poppy and other crops that caused surge in wheat prices, according to local residents.

In the past, the price of 2.5 kilogram of wheat was 130afs while now it has surged to 200 afs and everyone could not buy it.
