Now they are making a good profit despite a drop in supply as more customers are showing up, the traders said. Last year, the traders sold Gopalbhog at Tk 35 per kg which is now sold at around Tk 80 per Kg. He also said that this year the government fixed a mango production target of 325,000 tonnes in the district. Sadar and Shibganj Upazilas yielded fewer mangoes this season than expected but the Barendra area yielded more, according to him.
