Tamil Nadu banana farmers compromised by pandemic and incessant rains

Tamil Nadu banana growers are facing tough times after their cultivation was hit by heavy rains and the Covid pandemic. Tamil Nadu Banana Growers Federation state secretary, A.G. Ajeethan has stated: "Excessive rains have led to the collapse of the market and our retail supply is hit. The popular varieties of Poovan and Cavendish fruits are cultivated in the state in more than 1 lakh hectare but owing to the supply chain becoming stagnant, prices have come down drastically."

According to Ajeethan, twenty per cent of the sale depends on metropolitan cities and after the pandemic that led to the shutdown of the state, the incessant rains led to the supply chains being hit leading to the fall in prices of the bananas.
