Helping local mango growers
The KSMD&MCL was established in January 2011 with the main objectives to facilitate mango growers for quality mango production, better post-harvest management, direct marketing, export and processing.
The corporation helps mango growers of Karnataka to produce quality fruits with Good Agricultural Practices (GAP) and to market the fruits directly to consumers through their online portal in the registered trademark “karsiri mangoes” brand at reasonable or affordable cost.
The pesticides residue levels (MRL) in the produce are well within the prescribed limits and free from calcium carbide, said the KSMD website. Moreover, these mangoes are ripened with the help of ethylene, which is safe in all respects. As these mangoes are directly sold by the farmer from the orchard, the consumer would get naturally ripened, carbide free, damage free, fresh mangoes, said the website.
The mangoes available are alphonso/badami/apus, neelum, dashehari, kesar, beneshan, tothapuri, malgova, mallika, raspuri, sendhura and many more. To know more, there is also a contact customer support as well – 7411168063.
