The Saga of Sweet Potato

(1, 2 and 3) Workers are seen harvesting, picking and sorting potatoes -- the most consumed carbohydrate-rich vegetable in the country -- at a field in Birtara union under Sreenagar upazila of Munshiganj.

(4 and 5) Farmers carry sacks full of potatoes on cycles to nearby cold storages to store their spuds while another group holding baskets full of the tuber crop on their heads is heading towards a nearby wholesale market to sale those.

Despite higher cultivation costs, growers are pleased with this year’s prices for the most commonly consumed vegetables.

The snaps were taken on Friday.
