 Dip in apple prices serious concern: AFF


Srinagar, Apr 1, KNT: Jammu Kashmir Apple Farmers Federation (JKAFF) Monday expressed serious concern over losses and sharp decline in apple prices saying that apple growers are facing losses due to the low demand for apples.


Apple Farmers Federation President Zahoor Ahmad Rather and General Secretary Ab Rashid Itoo have expressed their dismay over the current situation, saying that there has been a drastic decrease in apple prices compared to the rates during the main apple season in October-November 2023.


They expressed concern over the losses faced by buyers due to the lack of demand this year. While growers may not bear losses, buyers are grappling with substantial financial setbacks, having purchased apples at higher rates during a period of greater demand.


Apple Farmers Federation urged the government to intervene in the matter to save the growers and buyers. [KNT]
