    Davana is a sensitive botanical and produces a high yield only when weather conditions are just right. The harvest in March did produce a good yield due to a combination of good weather and the amount of acreage planted. Unfortunately, the farmers planted too much and this resulted in softer prices. In view of the depressed prices, it is likely that farmers will drastically cut down on acreage and look to other crops to whittle down the excess inventories from last year. Prices seem to be touching a trough; it is an opportune time to cover long-term requirements.
