India: Dropping kinnow price worries Fazilka growers

Fazilka kinnow-growing farmers are a worried as their fruit is garnering just half the price this year as compared to the previous year. Traders are offering just Rs 6-8 per kg as compared to Rs 14-16 per kg last year. Tajinder Singh, Deputy Director (Horticulture), said the reason for the low price was a bumper crop of Nagpur oranges, which dissuaded traders from entering the market in Fazilka

“Farmers feel that the kinnow mandi in Abohar is proving to be a bane for them as traders and exporters do not go to the orchards and buy the produce from the mandi at cheaper rates,” Babber told

The bumper kinnow crop is a main reason for the low prices, as yields of 15-20 tons of kinnow per acre have been recorded. As per a report sent by the Horticulture Department to the state government, the Covid pandemic is another reason for the dismal disposal of the fruit.
