Heavy rains coupled with high-speed wind that lashed different parts of Idukki district in the last four days caused extensive damage to standing crops in nearly 1.26 hectare, agriculture department officials said on Tuesday after preliminary estimates. Although the heavy rain brought a lot of respite to the people from scorching temperatures which had soared 38 degrees Celsius in several parts of the district, they also caused a lot of misery to the farmers by damaging crops which were almost for harvest.
Kyle Funseth said he has seen hail damage crops in his five years of farming, but nothing like the hail that pummeled his soybean crop Saturday near his home west of Hatton. "A storm of this size, especially with such a wide swath of hail, is very unusual," he said, adding hail is often localized. As a fifth-generation farmer, Funseth farms about 1,000 acres. Hail from Saturday hit almost all of his land, but the damage came in patches. Marble- to golf ball-sized hail damaged the 50 acres of soybeans near his house, leaving virtually nothing but stems.
Heavy rain on Saturday and Sunday night has brought cheer to farmers in Bidar district. Farmers, who waited for rain in the last six faming seasons, suffered crop losses and strived to rear cattle with scarce water and green grass, were relieved when most parts of the district received heavy rain for more than three hours on Saturday and Sunday night. As much as 8.6 mm rainfall was received on June 4 and 11.8 mm on June 5.
