He informed that till now four lakh rupees have been spent for this guava garden. He said that besides guava, my farm has banana, chilli, Kalingad sugarcane.
Advantage of selling on the spot
Traders come to the place and buy guavas. That saves us the cost of transportation. We used to just cut the guavas from the fields, after which traders would come to the place and take their goods. Also, Dattatray Labde said that the money for the agricultural products is also being paid in cash immediately. In the local market Peru gets the rate within Rs 50. Labade said at this time that it is affordable to send guava to the foreign market. Every farmer must send his goods to the outside market. He also said that wherever Peru gets a good price, it should sell its goods there. Meanwhile, two years of losses were suffered during the lockdown period. Dattatray Labde informed that Peru was hit by not getting the right price.
