Maharashtra pomegranate growers seek land near Jalna dry port for packaging and grading

An association of pomegranate producers in Maharashtra has demanded land near the dry port in Jalna district -that is currently under construction- for the packaging and grading of fruits grown in the region.

Akhil Maharashtra Dalimb Utpadak Sanshodhan Sangh secretary Dr Suyog Kulkarni said their delegation recently met Union Road Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari to put forth the various demands.

He stated: "The work of the dry port in Jalna has been delayed. This port is important for every vertical of the industry in Jalna and also in nearby areas as it will facilitate export. We have demanded that the government provide two acres of land along this dry port project which will help farmers in the packaging and grading of their produce."

Kulkarni said the association has also demanded that the government change the norms of calculating the pesticide remains over the pomegranate fruit produce.
