The Quintal was over Rs 8,300 last month

Decreased yields due to heavy rains last year

Farmers’ concern that we are losing out

Prices are falling while Turmeric yields are being brought to market. Last month, the price of the Quintal was above Rs 8,300. Within a month, the price had dropped to over Rs 2,000. Nirudu, on the other hand, was hit hard by heavy rains in November. Yield decline. Farmers are worried about the lack of affordable prices. This is the tearful story of farmers in CM Jagan’s home district Kadapa. In Kadapa district Turmeric is cultivated in 15 thousand hectares. Maidukuru, Proddatur, Khajipeta, Duvvur, Ontimitta, Rajampeta and Rajupalem mandals are the most cultivated. Turmeric is also cultivated in Chagalamarri, Mahanandi, Allagadda and Panyam mandals in Kurnool district. The farmers are investing up to Rs 1.50 lakh per acre. Yields are usually 35 to 40 quintals per acre.

The crop was badly damaged by heavy rains in November. Farmers complained that the yield did not exceed 10-15 quintals per acre. The yellow market in Rayalaseema is located in Kadapa. Currently 1500 to 2000 bags of goods are coming to the market per day. On Friday, the yellow price of the quintal was quoted at a low of Rs 3,199 and a high of Rs 6,740. A lot with only 8 bags costs Rs.7225

Uttered. Most of the time, the price does not exceed Rs 5500 to Rs 6500, the farmers said. Farmers are worried about the fall in prices. Heavy rains have damaged crops and reduced yields by more than half.

Should be purchased by the government

The Nirudu state government has fixed the yellow support price at Rs 6,850 and bought it from farmers. While 50,000 tonnes were procured across the state, 16,500 tonnes were procured through AP Markfed in Kadapa district alone. Farmers say the government should set a minimum support price of more than Rs 8,500 or buy into debt. The government wants to respond to the plight of yellow farmers.

The government must support it

Cultivated turmeric on three acres. The investment was Rs 1.50 lakh per acre. If the normal yield is 35-40 quintals the farmer will not suffer any loss. Due to heavy rains, even 15-20 quintals is not expected. Yellow crop compensation, no crop insurance received so far. If the government sets the support price at Rs 10,000 and buys, we will get out of trouble. Otherwise we will be in debt. – R. Venkatramireddy, Chemmullapalli village, Khajipeta zone
