Udupi Jasmine

The Shankarpura Mallige Belegarara Hitarakshana Vedike has opposed the proposition of the Agriculture Division and the Farming Create Marketing Commission APMC to set up a field in Udupi to bridge jasmine flowers grown by farmers in the regularise. Shankarpura Mallige is grown in Shankarpura and nearby villages in Udupi territory. Addressing presspersons here on Wed, chairwoman of the vedike Ramakrishna Sharma said that for the medieval 75 age, farmers maturation jasmine in Shankarpura and nearby villages utilized to proceed unitedly and settle the price of the blossom.

This scheme was straight and well ordered. The sell field proposed by the department instrument be a big blow to farmers he said. The sale of jasmines grown in the Shankarpura course was unfree to Udupi and Dakshina Kanarese districts. The Government's quest that it welcome to goods the bloom was fistular. It should issue figures on how many jasmines grown in the district had been exported so far. It should also fund info as to where it would be exported, Mr. Sharma said. The Shankarpura jasmine cannot be compared with jasmines being auctioned in Metropolis. The flowers grown and auctioned there mortal a lifespan of up to 15 days.

This includes the cardinal hours understood to cut them and outlet them into the industry. The Shankarpura jasmine turns red within two hours of its separation from shivery storage. Thence the offering to set up a nippy storage place for Shankarpura jasmines does not piss signification, he said. He regretted that though jasmine flowers were lost owing to rainfall, no compensation was state acknowledged to growers in the territory. No steps had been purloined to engage business incentives to jasmine farmers or to protect and alter their plants. Zilch had been finished to turn the agree of jasmine plants either.
