TAIPEI (Taiwan News) –Farms in Yunlin County are now filled with yellow flowers, attracting many visitors to stop by and take pictures. However, the story lies behind the sea of flowers is the low price and difficult sales of agricultural products.
As the price for lettuce keeps on plummeting recently, farmers in Yunlin have no choice but to leave them in the farm, and with the lettuce started blooming, the farms are turning into the current yellow flower sea.
Some farmers indicated that they used to pluck lettuce from the field before it starts blooming, but due to the current low price, they couldn’t afford the labor cost and transportation fees of picking up those vegetables and had to leave them in the farm.
