Apple growers face labour shortage in plucking season due to COVID-19

Apple growers are facing labour shortage ahead of plucking season due to COVID-19.

As transportation services have not been restored properly, labourers are finding it tough to come back.

One of the apple growers said, "Transportation services have not been restored properly, labourers are finding it tough to come.

Many labourers come from Nepal, they are also facing difficulties." Apple growers have also covered their orchards with net to save the fruit from hailstorm.
