Grape growers in India hope to boost revenue with new varietiesGrape cultivators in Maharashtra India are hoping to fetch better revenue in the near future as the state has decided to introduce new varieties of the fruit that would match the global quality in terms of taste, colour and length of grape-bids.
This was decided at a meeting of the state government and the Maharashtra Grape Growers’ Association on Wednesday. The government has decided to import new varieties of grapes and cultivate them in the state.
According to state agriculture minister, Pandurang Fundkar, Maharashtra’s grape export is around two lakh tonnes, annually. Grapes are exported to Netherlands, Germany and other European Union countries from India. Raisins' export is also around 50,000 tonne and demand for both the commodities is growing.
He further stated that to match the rising demand and tap new markets, new varieties of grapes were needed. The state’s decision is certainly going to help grape growers in the state.
