Coconut growers in distress as copra prices fall – The Hindu

The price of copra in the market at Tiptur in Tumkur district and Channarayapatna in Hassan district was at Rs.6,400 per quintal on Wednesday. This is Rs.100 less than the minimum support price (MSP) of Rs.6,500 declared by the Central government. For last few days, the price has been in the same range, leaving the coconut growers worried.The growers have been looking forward to the Department of Agriculture Marketing and National Agricultural Cooperative Marketing Federation to intervene and help them growers by setting up the procurement centres. However, so far, there are no signs of setting up of such centres.
