In the highest feat of 85 years' history, 10.60 lakh quintals turmeric crop reached the Nizamabad market yard this year.

Launched in 1933, it is the second largest market yard in Telangana, well known for turmeric crop all over India. While a major part of turmeric crop reached the market yard from Nizamabad, Nirmal, Jagityal districts various food grains such as paddy, maize, turmeric, pulses, soya bean, sunflower, aamchur, onions and other crops are also sold from here.

Earlier this market yard was situated at Gandhi gunj near the clock tower and later was shifted to spacious 67 acres and named as Sharddanand Gunj.

In 2012-13, the Nizamabad Market yard set a record with 9.6 lakh quintal of turmeric crop arriving, however, this year’s 10.6 lakh quintal of turmeric has beaten the previous record. Officials are expecting another 2.5 lakh to 3 lakh quintals crop in the coming two to three weeks.

The turmeric produce was being sold by the Nizamabad and surrounding district farmers at Sangli market yard in Maharashtra as the price offered at this market was somewhat higher compared to Nizamabad. But with the GST implementation, this year, the difference in price at Sangli and Nizamabad was minimal due to which the market yard was receiving a high quantity of turmeric.
