In only 3 weeks, dumping of fruit and vegetable leaves is a problem for farmers, as no wholesaler wants to take stock since the implementation of the Movement Control Order (MCO). Not even 1 lemongrass is sold and the mustard, which is in great demand at the market, is distributed to the villagers and the rest is processed for livestock. On average, each vegetable producer loses more than 100 tons of vegetables during this MCO, and the vegetable price also dropped sharply because the farmer's produce cannot be sold.
