Kerala's Horticorp procures bananas from Indian farmers amid lockdown

Kerala state government body Horticorp has started procuring bananas from farmers directly in the district of Wayanad, as they were not able to sell their produce due to the nationwide lockdown. The district produces over 200,000 tonnes of bananas from 8,700 hectares of land.

Horticorp collects fresh and non-toxic vegetables from the farmers and sells them directly to customers at reasonable prices. On April 19, the government procured passion fruits from farmers in Munnar after authorities came to know about the plight of many small scale farmers during the lockdown.
