India: Nunna Mango Market Looks Deserted
- May 04, 2018 -

The Nunna Mango Market, one of the biggest mango markets in the country, looks quite deserted due to lack of trading this season. This market is famous for exporting mangoes to Delhi, Maharashtra, Haryana and Hyderabad. 

Hundreds of mango traders and middlemen come to Nunna Mango Market every year to purchase the fruits. This season, trading started on April 7. So far, just 100 tons of mangoes were brought to the market by farmers. Last year, farmers had brought about 500 tons of mangoes to the market every day, said a market supervisor. Lack of rain and harsh weather were responsible for the crop failure this season in Krishna district. 

Unfortunately, the crop failed in the flowering stage this season, said Bobbili Kondala Rao, a well-known mango exporter. Thehansindia.com quoted him as saying the farmers are facing hardships as there is insufficient water for the mango trees. Groundwater levels are also declining in the Nuzvid region, as there has not been enough rain for three years.
