In June 2021, The Rates prevailing at Yamunanagar Mandi are Over/under – 950 to 800 Rs/quintal, Sokta – 560 Rs/Quintal, Firewood- 250 Rs/ Quintal.

There is no Government website that communicates daily/weekly/monthly prices of Wood logs in mandi in contrast to other Agriculture produces prices which can be checked through many ways. The e-NAM is the most popular website for checking crop prices in any district.

But there is a way to check the poplar prices. The ‘Lakkarwala’ mobile app provides the Weekly mandi prices trend in Yamunanagar.

The poplar prices do have seasonal variations. The labour shortage during the Rice sowing season results in less supply of Poplar in the market and hence one can observe a price rise. During Monsson, one can witness the surge in poplar prices. Thus, Farmer can plan and sell at the appropriate time to get higher profits.
