Indian farmers get ready for a bumper harvest of Barhi dates

It has been a decade since Barhi date tissue culture plants were first imported to India from Israel. Production of the fruit has taken some time to get off the ground and produce high yields, but this year’s harvest is set to be the best yet, according to producer Anmol Rattan Sharma from Gorasiya Farm in western India. Predicted harvest is between 1000 – 2000 MT in just over two months.

“Every year we have managed to produce more and more Barhi dates and we will be harvesting during the last week of June. At this point in time, everything is looking very good; the flowering and pollination has been done. “The flowers look excellent and we’re expecting a good crop this time, better than ever,” Sharma said.
