Where do i sell water melon

Dear All,

I have water melon growing in my farm - 6 acres, Each fruit is around 10 KG’s of weight. I would like to sell the crop in this week , Can any one please suggest best way to sell and let me know the current market price ? Some one visited my farm and they are asking for RS 5 for one KG , I am not Ok with this price.

My farm is in Andhra Pradesh ,anantha pur dist and it is near to Bangalore. I prefer to sell the entire crop instead of cutting and selling at bangalore market.

Looking forward for your valueble inputs.

Thank You
Ravi

Hi,

Even i have the same question.

You are lucky that you are getting 5rs per kg as just a week back its just 4 rs per kg.

Please let me know if you can find any buyers as my crop will come in Apr 1st week and your info will help to me.

If you can give your personal number then i would like to ask couple of questions regarding pest management.

Dear Vijay,

I am not lucky eiether. We just sold out our 3 acres of crop for 1 lakh and 25 thousand rupees, Water melon price seems to be decreased now, i think the retial price in Bangalore per kilo is 8 RS.

Hi Ravi,

I believe there is good price in Delhi for water melon, i saw some article in recent newspaper that Anantapur farmer took the watermelon directly to Delhi market and fetch very good price. Try to speak to Delhi market people and have to take some risk to get the price !

Thanks,

What was your yield/acre avergae you should get 15Mt for hybrid you should get 25Mt/acre.  Can you explain your method of cultivation, spacing,manuring, veriety etc.

We are yet to calcualte the tons. We have sold total 3 acres crop for the price i have mentioned. Seed is Namdhari G292 , I guess we will get 10MT per acre

Hello Bhanu,

I am not aware of any one from Delhi, I still have water melon growing in another 3 acres, it will be ready for sale in another ten days. Hopefully this time i would try to sell at the Market instead of meadiators.

Hi Ravi,

No need to know anyone from Delhi, Google it and call few people and figure out the price and compare what price you are getting ?

Let me know if you need any help to find out the price in Delhi, i will try my best.

Thanks,
Bhanu

Hi Ravi,

10 T/A is a reasonable yield. And based on your selling price, you got 4.16 per kg which is kind of less.

I am just guessing the price is less because the exports to delhi came down because of delhi weather.

How much you spent for Acre ??

Hello Guys,

People from Delhi or Mumbai can try to find out the price of the watermelon and put the price in farmnest, that will help these farmers who put effort and energy to cultivate and not getting the correct price.

Common guys help each other.

Thanks in advance,

Dear Guruprasad Sir, I can express my observations about humic acid.

Humic acid is applied for healthy root growth.  I prefer Organic Humic acid and upto my knowledge M/s Karapur Industries, Goa are manufacturing Organic Humic Acid, and their brand name is Humigrow. Price is around rs 180/- ( granuels ) to rs 350/- ( liquid ) ( prices are approximate and pl negotiate with the company’ s sales officials.

In Humic acid , Liquid is better than granuels

Initially, it is better to drench/put 2 to 3 kgs per acre, on the beds, while planting. After , basing on the crop, once in 2 to 4 months, apply 1 to 1.5 kg granuels and/or 1 to 1.5  ltr of liquid humidic acid , per acre.

Mostly rate depends on quantity. Pl have healthy negotiation with company officials.

contact phone of Karapur agro is 09740025313.

All the best  sir,  g.p.rao,  farmer

You could also look at agmarknet website to know the prices.
