It should be noted that the demand for chilli has gone up as chilli crops were damaged due to attacks of pests, viruses and unseasonal rains. Though the normal yield is around 20 quintals per acre, it is said that only three to four quintals of yield are being recorded this season. The Deshi variety chilli is grown in many parts of the erstwhile Warangal district.
