Nigeria’s sea of tomatoes………BBC

Nigeria’s Daily Trust newspaper has a stunning photo to accompany its story of the surplus in this year’s tomato harvest, which has caused prices to fall through the floor.

One tomato farmer in the northern state of Katsina tells the paper:

“Our tomato [crop] is fresh and healthy this year as we recorded no pest attack but the problem is the glut which makes its price to drop to 300 Naira ($1.50) from 5,000 Naira ($25) per big basket.”
