Udupi, Jun 28: The Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Zonal Agricultural and Horticultural Research Station, Departments of Agriculture, Horticulture and Forests and Sri Kshetra Dharmasthala Rural Development Project will organise a two-day State-level ‘Jackfruit Festival’ at Rajagnana at  Udupi on Saturday and Sunday, July 1 and 2.

Dr.Harish Joshi said that jackfruit was a major food item in Coastal and Malenadu districts a few decades back. But its value reduced, which is high in nutritional value, with the passage of time.

Jackfruit growers in Coastal and Malenadu districts also did not receive proper returns for the jackfruits grown by them. The aim of the State-level jackfruit festival is to focus on the importance of jackfruit. New varieties of jackfruits with their tingling tastes would be introduced at the fest for both the growers as well as jackfruit lovers. Growers can reap more benefits by doing value addition to jackfruit.

Yet another important objective was to create a systematic market for jackfruit. The festival would provide new insights to the growers on getting more income from their jackfruit produce.

The Krishi Vigyan Kendra had organised jackfruit festivals at various levels for the last two to three years with these objectives. It was for the first time that a State-level jackfruit festival was being organised inUdupi .

Nearly 30 stalls will be there and verity of jack fruits show will be arranged in two day function.
