MAN­GOES AND GRAPES FACE WRATH OF NA­TURE

Citadel - - FLASHBACK -

Both man­goes and grapes are the pride of Ma­ha­rash­tra. Due to un­sea­sonal rains, these fruits have faced the va­garies of na­ture, which has taken a toll on their ex­ports. Ac­cord­ing to the Ma­ha­rash­tra State Agri­cul­tural Mar­ket­ing Board (MSAMB), nearly 60 per cent of the pro­duce of 55,000 met­ric tons of man­goes is ex­ported from Ma­ha­rash­tra alone. Al­though grapes may just about meet the expectations of the ex­port mar­ket just like last year, the ex­port of the ‘King Of Fruits’ is def­i­nitely dis­ap­point­ing.
