Ginger takes a long !me before it is finally ready for the market. As a result, after toiling for nine months, when the !me comes for the sale of the crop, one is unable fetch enough price which can cover the cost of cul!va!on. The fluctua!on in prices being erra!c, making any projections about exact profit or loss is impossible. As a result, we had to harvest as and when the market showed an upward trend. This resulted in harvest at a premature stage, implying low yield in terms of weight, or overmature crop that resulted in lower prices. Also, waiting for the market to peak resulted in the loss of crop due to unfavorable weather conditions at !mes. This resulted in a feeling of utter helplessness.
