If you are able to manage the disadvantage, surely Mango is a profitable crop.
You won't find a single soul who says he/she does'nt like mangoes.Mango is called the 'KING'of fruits and 'KING' will reign for ever.
The Mango always had a market. Alhonso is the Supreme among mangoes; Ratnagiri in Maharashtra is synonymous with 'Ratnagiri Apoos' .
Alphonso has good export potentials and sells at a premium.The taste is uncomparrable.
The most significant news is the lifting of ban by U.S. admisnistration on import of Indian Mangos. So, we can see lot of shiploads of Mangos heading to America this year. Hitherto, Gulf was the main market for Indian Mangos.
We can supply genuine Ratnagiri Alphonso grafted mango saplings.
