Passing The Field
by Danu Primanto
A farmer passes through the middle of onion fields in Karanganyar district, Central Java, Indonesia. The onion is usually used in cooking where it makes the taste more spicy. The high rise of oil price hit onion price slowly. Now, the farmers can only sell it at 1,500 rupiahs/kilograms ($ 0,15).
