Greetings to one and all!
I am Guru Prasad, Papaya farmer from Hiriyur, Chitradurga district.
I request all Papaya farmers to share their contact numbers and as well as the reliable Papaya buyers to whom they are selling their harvest. This will help similar farmers like me to be well informed about the current market price, terms of purchase. Mutual discussion also helps to share cultivation practices atleast during emergencies.
I hereby start with the contact of the buyer in my area (Hiriyur) to whom I sell my harvest. Below are the details:
He purchased my harvest last week at 7 Rs/Kg for fruits with upto 4 yellow lines. He does not purchase ripe fruits which are completely yellow. I request other farmers as to what they do with the ripened fruits (which still have 3 to 6 days of shelf life). I sold these fully yellow fruits recently at 3 Rs/Kg which I feel is too less a price. Kindly advice.
Thanks & Regards
