Karnataka government will need to establish a cooperative society, develop storage and preservation facilities for mango crop, according to Health and Medical Education Minister Dr K .Sudhakar.

Speaking at the inauguration of mango farmers and sellers meet here, Minister Sudhakar said mango needs a quick market disposal as it can’t be stored for long period. There is no proper storage facilities including cold storage in Chikkaballapur and Kolar districts.

“Sugarcane farmers in north Karnataka have established a cooperative society to store and preserve their produce. Similarly, there is need here to establish  a society for storage and preservation of mangoes. This is also in line with PM Modi’s vision of Aatmanirbhar Bharat,” he added.

Mangoes are grown in 1.67 lakh hectare area in the state, Kolar, Chikkaballapur and Ramanagar is leading with production of 12-14 lakh tonnes of mangoes. 14 lakh tonnes of mango yield is expected this season as there is an increase in production, said the Minister.

“Kisan Rail is helpful for farmers to transport their produce. Diseases are increasing due to excessive use of chemicals in the crops. Farmers should not go for more production using chemicals, organic farming is healthy and sustainable,” said  Dr Sudhakar.
