For the first time from Sri Lanka, arrangements have been made to export the first consignment of sour banana to the Dubai Market on November 26, Agriculture Minister Mahinda Amaraweera said.
He said 12,500kg of sour bananas in a 40' container will be exported to Dubai market later this month.
Sri Lanka's economy is currently suffering from foreign exchange crunch.
Therefore, Sour Banana has been cultivated as a project in Rajanganaya with the aim of earning foreign exchange.
It has been cultivated in 200 acres of the land in the Rajanganaya farm zone," he said. (Chaturanga Samarawickrama)
