Special Correspondent

Udhagamandalam: As part of their efforts to promote floriculture in various parts of the Nilgiris the branches of Syndicate Bank in Udhagamandalam and at M. Palada organised a face to face programme here on Friday.

The Assistant Director of Horticulture A. J. Jagadeesh Kumar who presided, underscored the need to focus more on marketing.

He listed the various schemes being implemented for developing floriculture in the Nilgiris.

In the interaction that followed it was suggested that the cut flower cultivators who had been extended financial assistance by the Syndicate Bank should form a group. Collectively they should strive for a better deal on the price front.

Optimum use should be made of the flower auction centre. The Senior Manager, Syndicate Bank, Udhagamandalam, G.Vizaya Kumar welcomed the gathering.
