The farmers’ faces blossomed due to the rise in chili prices
Muzaffarnagar. With the rise in prices for green chillies in the vegetable market, the faces of chilli growers have blossomed. In the vegetable market, chilies are sold at wholesale prices of up to 25 rupees per kg, while chilies sold for 7-10 rupees per kg a month ago.

In the district, chili is grown on a large scale in villages such as Sikhera, Behda Assa, Chitauda, ​​Kawal, Khatauli, Gangadhadi, Buda Khurd, Bhopa, etc. Smallholder farmers are currently also making up to 20,000 rupees a week by producing seven to eight quintals of chilies each week.
What do farmers say?
Pintu, a farmer from Sikheda village, said he planted chillies in a field with four bighas in February. The first harvest took place in April. At that time the price for chilli was ten rupees per kg, today the market price for chilli is 25 to 30 rupees per kg.
Farmer Rahul said that after sowing sugar cane, he used the digging method to grow chillies in it, which had double benefits. The cultivation of Chile is currently proving to be a lucrative business. So far it has broken four times.

Farmer Sushil says chillies are planted in nine bighas. In fifteen days, twenty to 25 quintals of chillies fall into a chilli branch. Chili saved the farmers from the economic downturn.
