The taluk headquarters, Thirthahalli is famous for several reasons. One of the popular reasons is its rich historical and agricultural background. The area is not only known for literary background or history but also for its Areca crop. The areca plantations are spread across the region and are one of the major commercial crops in the area. There are ups and downs in the price of this crop frequently but has remained stable from past couple of years. This unique crop goes as a major raw material supply for the Gutka manufacture and pan masala in India.
The growers were pushed to frustration of price fluctuations on one hand and the court bans on Gutka consumption in the country on the other. Struck with these dilemmas several planters from the area have already looked for alternate sources of income and tried to back it up along with maintaining their estates. However, the small growers are at risk as the crop always stays on the tenterhooks of ban, price loss, heavy rains, fungus diseases…
Recently, from couple of years, these estates have also started to cater for the tourism industry in Karnataka.
