Price per kilogram of guava is two to three taka. (2-3tk).

The floating market appears as the centre of Barisal's - the Venice of Bangladesh- beauty.

Nobody knows when the idea of the floating market came, but it is a hundred years old tradition.

Although, it is a traditional occupation of these farmers, the nutritious fruit, however, has become a curse on their lives.

The sweet fruit that earns 2-3 tk to these farmers, are sold for 50-100 tk per kilogram in city markets.

The farmers are aware of their salvation and how they can make profit, but they are waiting for government and private initiatives.

g16

Farmers need guava processing factories but a number of shrewd intermediaries are taking advantage of cold storage and communication crisis.

There is hardly any land for rice or wheat farming, so guava is the only hope for these farmers and their families.
