govtBengaluru: The Karnataka government has reacted to the issues of mango producers and proclaimed a support price of Rs 2.50/kg (Rs 2,500 for each ton). Agriculture Minister N H Shivashankara Reddy pronounced the measure in both the houses of the State Legislature.

Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy likewise educated about the decision in the Assembly. “In state, farmers got a decent harvest of mango this time and a similar thing occurred in the neighboring Andhra Pradesh. Andhra Pradesh government has prohibited purchase of mango from Karnataka. Thus, farmers of the state are in a bad position”, he said.

In the state, there are just two mango processing units while Andhra Pradesh has 59 units. ” We checked about the processing units of Maharashtra yet they have around 50,000 metric huge amounts of fruits as of now in their units.,” Karnataka CM said.

This is the first time in Karnataka that the government has announced support price for mango. The decision would burden the treasury by around Rs 17-20 Crore.

The Chief Minister guaranteed the individuals from the council that more mango processing units would be set up in the state.

Speaker Ramesh Kumar mediated in the discussion and proposed paying the support price through just APMC to keep away from misappropriation.
