No Kharif, farmers cry

imagesMonsoon failure this season has pushed the farmers into a penurious situation as kharif crop did not come to hand as stipulated. Agriculture scientists have come up with alternate plans for next rabi season. They advised farmers to go for short duration crops as the four-day rainfall revived the hopes of the farming community. In place of 80 lakh acre, irrigation of paddy now has shrunk down to less than half of it as tanks, reservoirs have dried up and the water storage has reached dead storage level in the barrages.
