Ganjam district suffered a loss of paddy grown on 6,849.44 hectare land due to untimely rains in 125 panchayats and three notified area councils (NACs). The district suffered the loss of standing crop grown on 6,960-hectare land. This was stated by Deputy Director, Agriculture Kasinath Khuntia during a review meeting presided over by Collector Vijay Amrit Kulange.
The first damage count came from the Metapontino area, after the heavy rain that last night struck the entire Ionian arc, with heavy downpours and sirocco winds of up to 100km/h. The municipalities of Policoro and Scanzano, in the province of Matera, are the areas most affected by this new meteorological event, where a whirlwind has caused serious damage to both civil and agricultural structures.
Hundreds of farmers in Bhadrak district are in distress as thousands of hectares of standing crops are likely to be damaged due to cyclone ‘Bulbul’-induced rains which have already started in several parts of the district. According to reports, moderate rainfall began from the wee hours of Friday at some places in the district.
Rain over much of the southwestern Cape, plus snow on some mountain peaks, has caused some ice rain damage on apples and nectarines in mountainous areas plus difficulty reaching Brix export levels among some stonefruit producers, but overall the effect of the rain has been more positive than negative, growers say.
Excessive rains and an October snowstorm have stalled the harvest in the U.S. grain belt’s northern tier, one more blow to farmers already struggling with the effects of planting delays and a trade war that has pressured commodity prices. The corn and soybean harvests are especially delayed in North Dakota and Minnesota - precisely the states suffering the most from the U.S.-China trade war due to their reliance on exporting to Asia through West Coast ports.
The post-monsoon rainfall has severely affected the grape crop in the flowering stage across Pune, Nashik, Sangli and Solapur districts. The lack of sunlight and presence of mist have also affected vineyards in the region, which includes the leading grape-producing districts in the state. Essentially, hundreds of acres of grape plantations are in a bad shape.
The incessant post-monsoon rains have become a matter of concern for farmers as they are playing havoc with the standing crops as well as the harvested crops such as paddy, soya, cotton and maize. Paddy in hundreds of acres got damaged due to the recent heavy rains in Yedapally, Dichpally, Armoor, Sirikonda, Mogpal, Navipet, Makloor and Renjal mandals.
