Bangladesh growers fear losses as storm damages mango buds

Rajshahi mango growers fear losses this year as the buds of their fruits have been severely damaged in a recent hailstorm. The storm went through Rajshahi city and the surrounding area between 2:30pm and 3:30pm on Sunday. Although no casualties were reported, it caused severe damage to crops in rural areas and caused many mango buds to fall from trees. It also caused severe dust storms in the city.

According to the Department of Agricultural Extension, mango has been cultivated on 8,368 hectares in Charghat county this year. About 2 tons of buds have been damaged due to the storm.

Mango farmers of the district said fewer mango buds had sprouted this year to begin with, and the storm has made matters worse.
