This year also, the amount of exportable quality mango is expected to be around 100 tonnes. Of those, at least 50 tonnes are likely to be exported with arrangement of the Department of Agriculture Extension (DAE).

14 businessmen exported 25 tonnes mango last year while 30 tonnes in 2017. The success has been achieved by dint of promoting best hygiene practice and other modern technologies in some mango orchards commercially in the district last year for the first time yielding more than 50 tonnes of exportable safe and disease-free mango.
