Mango trading has gained momentum with appearance of several varieties of mango in the markets of Rajshahi and Chapainawabganj districts.Besides the market, Hat and other growth centre ones, the mango-based trade and business has changed the rural economic scenario of the region as a whole.At present, if any one visits wherever and whenever in the two districts he or she will see mango and its vending and people and the visitors in particular purchasing the delicious fruit whatever the price is.During the current peak season, Gopalbhog, a king variety of mango for its taste and flavor along with some other delicious varieties like
Langra and Himsagar have appeared in the markets in abundance besides other local and developed varieties. However, the brisk business of Gopalbhog is believed to be finished within next couple of days.According to the sources concerned, market price of the seasonal delicious fruit is exorbitant this season due to less production
caused by different natural catastrophes.Now the city’s markets are abundant with all varieties of mango and
the wholesale buyers as well as the retailers have been pouring into the markets and bargaining to settle the price.  Gopalbhog is being sold at Taka 2400 to 2600 per mound while Langra and Himsagar at Taka 2000 to Taka 2200 and Taka 1800 to 2000 in the wholesale markets and there is no possibility of declining the market price in the days ahead.In Rajshahi city, many places like Shaheb Bazar, Swarnapatty, Seroil,Railway Gate, Luxmipur, Bus terminal, Court Bazaar, New Market,Upashahar Market, Shalbagan, Binodpur, Court Station and Baneshwar Bazar are flooded with mangoes. The traders are doing their brisk business.Besides the markets-based trading, many vendors are selling mango with vans and other manual vehicles frequently.Rahmat Ali, a mango- trader at Bus terminal in the metropolis, said the much- expected buying and selling has been gaining momentum gradually despite the high price.Like the previous years, people from across the country are coming in Rajshahi city and its outskirts especially Baneshawar Bazar to buy quality juicy mangoes.Meanwhile, around 40 tons of mangos are being supplied and transported from Rajshahi and Chapainawabganj districts to different parts of the country including the capital city Dhaka everyday at present.In addition to the passenger-coach, train, truck and other private vehicles, huge mangoes are being transported by the courier services in particular every day.However, most of the buyers do not bother whether they are buying quality mango or adulterated ones. Some conscious buyers alleged that a section of unscrupulous mango traders are mixing quality mangoes with low quality mangoes to make extra profit.Centering the marketing of mango, also an important cash crop in the northwestern Bangladesh especially in the two districts, a large number of people are involved in various types of works in the two districts.Dr Alim Uddin, Principal Scientific Officer of Mango Research Centre,said mango farming has been increasing every year and the gardeners
are earning huge profits by cultivating high yielding and hybridvarieties like Amropali side by side with the traditional and popularindigenous varieties.Rajshahi
