I have more than 1000 fully grown and yielding trees, marketing is a problem,
When the come first, Yield just started, then it fetches marginally better price, then as day passes yield grows, then the buyer comes with typically lesser prices.
Overall we can get a average price of Rs 12 to Rs 15 per kg in the field (When I used to take it to market it fetches Rs 30/ but higly flucuating, many players come in, in the form of loaders, un loaders, other commission agents)
On the yield side every 3 years one time completely yield stops, root grub, stem borer, Asvini issues are plenty, some times results in complete drying of fully grown tree
Location : near Aundipatti, in Theni dist of T.N
