Heavy Sept showers struck Canacona vegetable plants, farmers concerned | Goa News


POINGUINIM: Heavy rain at September has washed off the hard work put in by the farmers of Canacona taluka.
Individuals with enormous vegetables farms are feared since the harvest has begun showing signs of spoiling.
Prasad Velip, that climbed ladyfingers and other veggies on approximately 30,000sqm in Cotigao, also Sachin Naik from Poinguinim with 4,000sqm under cucumber cultivation, are dreading the worst.
“I made money to increase this harvest and was anticipating a fantastic return, but as you can see, my plantation is ruined by the rain. Like me, you will find many different farmers that have borrowed money in the expectation of tiding through those pandemic times. We could see our hopes becoming ruined,” Naik told TOI.
“Such odd heavy rain is quite harmful to paddy and vegetable plants, causing a very low return,” assistant director of agriculture Chandrahas Desai told TOI.
He explained heavy rain throughout the flowering phase, particularly for plants cultivated on hills, is bound to prove destructive.
