Mangaluru: Price of coriander leaves crosses century mark

Daijiworld Media Network – Mangaluru (MS)

Mangaluru, Sep 19: Generally the price of vegetables shoot up when the festive season is round the corner. However, this year, the rate of coriander leaves has touched an unbelievable level. Earlier the price was between Rs 20 and 30 per bunch. Now it has gone upto Rs 100 to 120.

Farmers who grew coriander greens in districts including Chikkaballapur and Kolar suffered losses due to incessant rains. So the supply is less and the middlemen are making good profit by quoting higher prices.

Coriander leaves that are farmed in Bengaluru rural and Chikkaballapur district have great demand in local APMCs and Bengaluru city. Many traders buy it from there and send it to Hindupura, Anantapur and Warangal districts of Andhra Pradesh. This is also one of the reasons for the high price.

The tomato price has shot up from Rs 50 to 80 per bag, while garlic is selling at Rs 100 per kg.

Vegetables are the daily essentials for all. In addition to an increase in its prices, the consumers are already facing the brunt of high rates of petrol, diesel, cooking gas etc., and the living cost on the whole has doubled.

Lower and middle class people are the ones who will suffer the most because of rising prices. If the rates of pulses and rice also shoot up, then it will be very difficult for people to even have three square meals a day.

    Cilantro (Coriandrum sativum) is an excellent herb for growing indoors—as either full-sized plants or microgreens. Plants need at least six hours of full sun per day or supplemental lighting. They prefer temperatures between 50 and 80°F and moist potting soil. Direct seeding is recommended for growing full-sized plants or microgreens; propagation using stem cuttings can be used to grow full-sized plants. Choose plastic or glazed ceramic containers and a growing media that is well-draining.

    Bhaktas will clap hands till it reaches to Rs200.00. Folks no worries keep clapping like eunuchs as directed by self proclaimed vishwa guruji and prepare your meals without coriander flavour. But don't forget to vote brasta JP during next election both central and state and keep your grave ready to jump when the time is near.
