Plse forget about Export market. Find the system to restrict post harvest loss. India we have highest demand of fruits & Vegetables. Farmers unite together and go for efficient marketing channel.
A study made by biofarms to prevent post harvest loss and fetch better price for farmers
In India there is a very good market for PARVAL , Smooth gourd., yard beans, bitter gourd etc
In south Gujarat there is a big market for all.
With my experience with parval & Smoothy gourd,Bitter gourd== Idukki,KERALA
we are making the fresh fruits into round slices mix with salt & Turmeric powder and drying (using
dryer) drying cost is only Rs.3 /kg .
Increase shelf life ( Post harvest damage nil)
Very good deand in local market
In kerala we are selling fresh fruits -Rs.30/kg (Parval)
Dry 200 gm selling — Rs.30/-
Bitter gourd 200 gm —Rs.30//-
Plse think for EFFICIENT POST HARVEST SYSTEM, AND FORGET ABOUT EXPORT MARKET &
CONCENTRATE ON OUR POWERFUL DOMESTIC MARKET,
