Abundant supply keeps litchi price normal in Rangpur

Bumper production with abundant supply of litchi keeps its market price normal despite harvest of the juicy seasonal fruit is nearing completion now in Rangpur agriculture region.

Talking to the national news agency, both litchi growers and traders expressed their satisfaction over bumper production of the popular fruit as its harvest will end by the next ten days this season.

Litchi traders at Rangpur City Bazaar Market yesterday said plentiful litchi supply is keeping its price within normal limit between Tk 200 and Tk 600 per every 100 pieces depending on size, varieties and quality even at the end of harvesting season.

“At the initial stage of harvest, every 100 pieces of Bombay, Mozaffarpuri and Madrazi varieties of litchi were sold at rates between Tk 200 and 300 while China-3 variety between Tk 350 and 450,” said litchi trader Manu Mian at the market. “Besides, every 100 pieces of Bedana litchi was being sold at rates between Tk 450 and 600 depending on size and quality of the fruit in local markets two weeks back,” he added.

Meanwhile, supply of Madrazi, Mozaffarpuri and Bombay varieties of litchi is not available now as harvest of these litchi varieties already completed in the region.

Litchi trader Belal Mian at Rangpur City Bazar Market yesterday said, “Every 100 pieces of China-3 is being sold now between Tk 250 and 450 while Bedana litchi variety between Tk 350 and 600 following huge supply in local markets.”

Growers said farming of the Bedana variety of litchi has witnessed a rise in last few years due to its taste and shape.

Besides, late ‘Kanthali’ and ‘Elachi’ varieties of litchi are currently being sold at rates between Tk 250 and 350 per every 100 pieces, litchi trader Fazlul Haque said.

Litchi grower Hasanul Haque of Balapara Dilalpur village in Badarganj upazila  said he has been cultivating litchi on his orchard on three acres of land for past 12 years and earned profits all the time. “I had cultivated Madrazi and China-3 varieties of litchi, already sold the fruits to traders and earned about Tk 4.50 lakh this season,” Haque said.

Litchi farmers Ekramul Haque of the village and Shahidul Haque of Balapara village in the upazila had cultivated Madrazi, Bombay and China-3varieties of litchi on their orchards of one to two acres of land. “We have already completed harvest and sold all of the three varieties of litchi to traders and earned better profits,” Shahidul said.
