Farmers Hits Due to Heavy Rain

Heavy-RainPaddy, maize and cotton kept for sale at purchase centers were soaked by heavy rain in Karimnagar district on Wednesday. Several mandals, including Karimnagar, Husnabad, Jammikunta, Jagtial, Sircilla, Yellareddipet, Sankarapatnam, Kalva Srirampur, Manthani, Mahadevpur, Kataram and Maha Mutharam were lashed due to rain.
At 25 purchase centers and six market yards, rain drenched thousands of paddy bags. Bags of paddy which were already weighed and kept ready for sale got drenched in market yards. Officials have asked the farmers to dry the paddy and keep it ready for transport. Farmers were given receipts for the purchased paddy till Wednesday afternoon. It was a sudden downpour and since they did not have tarpaulin sheets handy all got wet.
Farmers are concerned about the same and wanted the government to initiate immediate measures to purchase wet paddy. Some private traders are bargaining with farmers to get it at a lower price.
