AP farmer gets record Rs 37,000 a quintal for chilli at Byadagi | Bengaluru News – Times of India


HAVERI: An Andhra Pradesh farmer got an all-time high price of Rs 36,999 per quintal in Asia’s biggest chilli market at Byadagi on Thursday. Gulleppa from Avuladatta village in Anantapur district, got the bumper price for his Dabbi variety chilli which was bought by Kishor and Company.
Chilli was sold at a high price of Rs 35,555 per quintal last week. The same variety was sold at Rs 33,333 per quintal in 2019.
The trade, which began at the beginning of this month, has not picked up as not many farmers are bringing their produce to the market due to the gram panchayat polls. On Thursday, 60,957 bags of chilli arrived at the market.

“It’s the first time I’m at the Byadagi chilli market to sell my produce and never expected this price. Last year, I sold my produce at Guntur market, but didn’t get a good rate. I had invested Rs 10,500 per quintal for producing and harvesting,” said Gulleppa.
Byadagi’s APMC authorities appreciated him for this achievement. Prabhu Doddamani, officer, Byadagi Chilli Market (APMC), said: “Our market has been a good platform for farmers as well as buyers for the past five decades. Chilli growers can get better if they maintain them — clean and dry them while selling their produce.”
