In the Madurai district, in the villages of Aviyur, Pangankulam, Usilambatti etc., jasmine farming is mainly done. Due to continuous rains in Madurai district for the past few weeks, the flow of flowers has decreased. But there is a series of ups and downs in the coming days. Also Onam festival is going to be celebrated on 8th. Therefore, due to this the demand of flowers is increasing. Due to low supply, the price of flowers has gone up manifold.
Flower Price Status:
|Jasmine||2300 to 2500 per kg|
|Rotana flower||800 per kg|
|Fiche flower||700 per kg|
|Sambangi||250 per kg|
Last week jasmine was sold at 1200 per kg. The price continues to rise and now jasmine is selling for Rs.2500. Traders said that the situation will remain the same for the next few days.
