The apple season has started in the state, the spar variety of apple has entered the Bhattakufar fruit market in the capital Shimla. Apart from this, apples of tight man and early red June variety have started reaching the market.
This time the government has implemented a new system for the purchase of apples, in which apples are being bid according to the forts. Due to the new system, both farmers and orchardists are currently facing some problems. Overall, apple and stone fruit growers are getting good prices in the initial season.
A farmer said – Maximum stone fruit is coming in the market, rest of that tight man is also coming little by little and this red zone is also coming. That red zone is being sold today at 24, 25, 28 rupees per kg and tight man is being sold at 40 to 50 rupees per kg.
So the Pulm etc. are also being sold at different rates, they are getting damaged, that means the quality is not good because of excessive rains, so they are being sold. Palams are being sold at rupees per kg, forty, forty five rupees per kg.
On the other hand, the gardeners have to say that without universal cartoon, the gardeners have been at a loss in buying apples on the basis of kg. They say that apples are coming in the patio from 28 to 32 kg, but they are buying on the basis of 24 kg, due to which The gardeners are facing losses.
Another farmer told – I had brought apricots, had brought plums and pears, yes the prices of the goods were found right. Again there is a problem in breaking it, like there is a box of 28 kilos, of 22 kilos. Paying money, the rest of your apple is going like this, it does not seem to have an idea that how many apple seeds are cut or not in the house. Not every person can keep a fork. That’s why there is some problem.
I had brought sun tarota? Overall, we are getting the goods properly, taking them according to the forts, so it is fine, what will be fine now, according to the forts, but if we put extra weight in it, then we will also suffer loss in that. Because there is a twenty-four kilo box like ours, they are saying, brother of twenty-four kilos, he is taking two kilos of weight, the empty weight of the box. So good goods will be charged at the right rate because it is minimum, it sells for three to four hundred rupees a box.
It is expected that the apple season will accelerate at least in the coming days, due to which the Shimla district administration has completed the preparations. This time around 1.5 to 2.5 million boxes of apple production is being estimated.
