SARGODHA - The 'kinnow' growers association and kinnow factory owners here jointly fixed the rate of fruit at Rs800/40kg.

Both the stakeholders, in a meeting with District Coordination Officer (DCO) Danish Afzaal, expressed satisfaction over the fixation of rates and hoped that they would work in collaboration with each other further to enhance kinnow's production and its export. In the meeting, both the stakeholders appreciated district administration's role for providing a platform that was not previously done. The factory owners also assured the DCO regarding implementation of the rates without any discrimination. The DCO hoped that such a decision would provide relief to kinnow growers as well as the factory owners.
