Early bloom in nearby states: Onam flowers to be dearer

Kalpetta: Though Onam is almost a month away, the flowers meant for the Onam market in Kerala have started blooming in neighbouring states. In the flower fields in Gundlupet in Karnataka, the harvesting of yellow marigold flowers are almost complete. The sight of vast fields draped in orange on either side of the Kozhikode-Mysore national highway is a treat for the eyes. As the flowering took place earlier than expected, the farmers are forced harvest and sell them to paint, cloth companies. They sell them at Rs 5 per kilogram. This early bloom could prove costly for Malayalis as flowers could be dearer during Onam festival.
