Gondia: The rabi season has also been troubled due to the fall in the rains this year. Due to lack of rainfall, there is also a small stock of irrigation in the district. Therefore, the irrigation project is less likely to get irrigation and the cultivation of Rabi will reduce by 25 thousand hectare.
Dhan is cultivated on two lakh hectares of Khana in the district. Rabi crops are cultivated on 50 thousand hectares. Many maths of rabi season depend on the water storage and return rain in irrigation project. An average of 1150 mm water is generated between June and October in the district. However, till September this year only 9 30 mm was registered. Due to the decrease in rainfall compared to the average and after the week the rain was missing, the irrigation projects had less water. Due to the incessant rains, due to a rain, the water was released to the priest, itiyadoh and other projects. Only 30 to 40 percent water is left in the big and medium irrigation projects. 25 percent of these water is reserved for drinking. After that the remaining water is left for a rabi crop. Since last year, the administration had decided to give water for rabi season due to very little water. Since the same condition this year, the farmers have stopped planting of rabi crops. Due to this, the agriculture department has estimated that only 25,000 hectares of cultivation of rabi can be planted this year. This is due to the reduction of 25,000 hectares in the field of Rabbi for the first time in the last three years. That is why farmers are likely to suffer this.
Kathan production will decline
This year, the Kharif season has got a lot of trouble because of the rains. After harvesting, rabbits are used for the cultivation of gram, tur, moong and karnan crops. However, due to the absence of rain and cold this year, the production of kathan goods is likely to decline. The agriculture department has estimated that this condition will remain in entire Vidarbha.
