Subject: Lift onion export ban: Farmers
Krishnagiri: Farmers in Krishnagiri district have urged the Centre to lift the ban on onion export to avoid huge stock piling up in the fields.

Farmers have cultivated small and big onions in more than 1,000 hectares across Krishnagiri district. Of this, export grade onions are cultivated in 400 hectares around Hosur, Shoolagiri and its surrounding villages. These onions used to be exported to Malaysia, Singapore, Taiwan and Hong Kong.

Since the Centre had banned onion export after onion prices started to increase in the country. “Due to this stock has been pilling up. Locals don’t prefer export grade onion as it tastes different,” S Manjunatha said.

Farmers usually get export quality onion seeds from private companies. These companies usually get the stock back from the farmers after harvest and export it. Farmers said the companies are not procuring onions due to the ban. 

The farmers are currently drying harvested onions as they will be spoiled if they fail to dry them. However, the district has been receiving rain in past few days.
