RAINS SPOIL MANGO, COCONUT CROP

Mango-1With the heat of the summer is catching up, one may expect to treat himself to juicy mangoes and coconut water but the excessive rainfall has led to the spoilage of their production. It may be a major disappointment for those looking forward to juicy mangoes and coconuts this summer as excessive rainfall has damaged the crops this year. Mango traders said that the mangoes have rotten. While some look fresh on the outside, one will find that it has rotten from the inside. Large quantities of mangoes are being segregated at APMC market and huge amounts have to be discarded everyday, as they are not fit for sale, which has led to losses in crores. With extreme weather conditions being felt in the city, one can only hope that the situation gets better than worsen more. With cameraperson Dyaneshwar Mali, R Parvathi for Navi Mumbai News.
