Farmers happy with groundnut production

The Agriculture Produce Marketing Committee yard here in Yadgir has been flooded with groundnut.
Due to the good yield, farmers, who faced losses for green gram and cotton, expressed happiness with the stable market prices and the bumper yield.
According to sources, the prices ranged between Rs. 4,800 and Rs. 5,100 per quintal.
They also added that last year the highest price was around Rs. 4,500. Around 68,000 quintals of groundnut arrived at the yard between January 20 and February 17.
And commission agents have been transporting them on the day of their arrival giving space for fresh arrival.
“We are happy with the groundnut production and also the prices,” Mallikarjun, a farmer from Ramsamudra village in Yadgir taluk, said.
He also said that farmers recovered the losses incurred by green gram, which was hit by short rainfall during sowing and as well as the crucial period of yielding.
