The problem has erupted due to the ongoing travel restrictions and as a result, buyers do not come to the Kandy area to purchase the produce and as a result, they even can't sell one avocado for even one rupee.
Usually, avocados in Kandy have a good demand and during the season, one avocado is sold between Rs 25 to 100.
The avocado is grown in Kandy area as a cottage industry and people in the area usually receive a good income.
Growers say this time, they have got a good harvest, but the prevailing heavy rains are also affecting the harvest.
