The unfortunate fact is though these rare and wonder seeds are in great demand across the globe, there has been a lack of well-coordinated organized agency to fix the uniform price for the seeds on the international and local markets. Part of the reason is the plants are grown in tribal lands. So, they sell the seeds to either the Girijan Cooperative Corporation (GCC) or businessmen, or exchange them in shandies. The jabra seeds as they are known locally cost Rs, 60/- to Rs.100/- a kilo. The small farmers believe that if the government comes forward and regulates a uniform price, for the Annatto plant seeds, it will not only improve their income but also help them bring more lands under the cultivation of ''Jabra seeds''
