If you’ve grown tomatoes and you have grown a large amount, don’t worry about ruining them at all. Specialists in the food department will teach you the tricks of making puree from tomatoes. This puree can be kept for a year. You can also sell any sauce maker whenever you want. Nowadays there is good tomato growing in all four counties of the Gorakhpur Division. In addition to hybrid tomatoes, farmers also grow a large amount of native tomatoes. The returns are also high. While there is no significant impact on tomato sales due to the lockdown, the amount has been produced. With this in mind, farmers need to sell their products at a lower price than the cost. In such a situation, the initiative was initiated by the food processing department to save the farmers’ tomatoes from ruin according to the instructions of the state government. This will inform the farmers how to make tomato puree. Pawan Kumar, department head and head of the state food science training center, said farmers can get information on how to make tomato puree by calling the experts from the four counties of Gorakhpur division.
