Kolar: Farmers dumped tonnes of mangoes on roadside near Srinivasapura in Kolar district due to a fall in the prices.

The Banganapalli, Benishan and Totapuri varieties are been dumped as they are being attacked by a fungal disease, and the prices are falling sharply. They are now demanding compensation from the government.

Kolar district Mango Growers Association President Neelaturu Chinnappa Reddy said that the price of Benishan variety has come down to ₹10,000-₹15,000 per tonne from ₹1 lakh in 2019.

“Farmers are struggling to even cover the transport cost. There were no purchasers from buyers from Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh for these varieties this year. We don’t even have factories here at  Kolar or at Chickaballapur that store and collect pulp,” he added.
