Trick: Increasing post-harvest value with modern marketing technologies: Banana export is the only way to increase potential and triple farmers’ income In his speech to the National Center for Banana Research (NRCB) Trichi, the 28th Foundation Day, he emphasized the need to take new technologies to the next level of banana farming.
The guest of honor at the event, SK Malhotra, Commissioner of Agriculture of the Government of India, said bananas are important for human health and the need to increase the export capacity of bananas by promoting the ‘cluster approach’.
“In addition to the ‘One Woreda One Product’ (ODEPO) program, the importance of branding is increasing in all products under the Atinirberhar Sea. The development of small and medium enterprises is also being considered. Tricy and Tennie districts are covered by banana development under ODEPO. In addition, the consistent growth and development of tissue culture plants has been promoted in order to attract profitable prices in the export market in banana farms, ”he said.
In his inaugural address, NRCB Director S. Uma said the institute has made a difference in banana farming by promoting banana improvement, production, conservation and post-harvest technologies.
Bananas grown here are the traditional value chain of bananas (BVC) 1 and BVC 2. BVC 1. BVC 2 is a state-of-the-art value chain where farmers sell their produce to major and independent traders. The BVC approach needs to be improved to still double the farmer’s income. Therefore, the institute will pay attention to the revised BVC and the market tax, he said.
