The farmers of Gondia district had to suffer huge economic losses during the Kharif season last year. With a view to meet this economic shortfall, farmers started farming again this year with new enthusiasm in Kharif season with the hope that they will get good crop this year.
Farmers did sowing by arranging financial and seeds in a similar way. But due to increasing effect of Karpa, Gadmashi and Khodkide on paddy crops, farmers are facing problems. Despite spraying insecticides on the crops, the effect is not reducing, due to which the farmer is stuck in a double crisis.
