Sharif said that it is not the farmers that set the produce prices; rather, auction at the central market determines those prices. He also said that while low temperature pushed produce prices up, retailers took advantage of the situation and crossed the line in rising the prices.

According to Sharif, there have been no exports recently, demand for Jordanian produce is low and the land road to Qatar is still closed.
