Areca nut, banana and some paddy have brunt of heavy rainfall

GOA: Preliminary reports of the crop loss in Goa revealed that areca nut, banana and some paddy have suffered the brunt of the heavy rainfall last week. As of Friday, 400ha of cultivated areas had been damaged, stated the information shared by the zonal agricultural offices (ZAO) across the state.

“Gradually the water has receded from paddy fields, so the crop is likely to survive. The seeds were transplanted weeks ago due to which the crop has been well established in the soil. If the submergence would have continued for four to five days, the crop would have started to rot. However, farmers of fruit bearing trees will incur losses since the crops have broken or the fruit has fallen,” an agriculture official said.

“More people are involved in agricultural activities in these talukas. Many of them who stay in remote areas here don’t have an alternative means of livelihood and largely depend on agriculture. We are in the process of assessing the losses faced there,” the official said.
