Poor tobacco harvest in Gonda
Gonda, Feb 10 (ANI): Farmers in Gonda in Uttar Pradesh are incurring huge losses in tobacco production because of last year's floods.
Several parts of the land are unfit for cultivation, thus farmers were unable to sow enough tobacco.
Nanda Lal Yadav , a tobacco farmer of Tehsil Tarabanj village said "This time we have sown tobacco only on seven-eight acres of land. Last year we had sown a lot more but due to floods we haven't been able to sow much this season. We haven't been able to nurture crops properly as well and also the government isn't giving any assistance."
Several farmers in Uttar Pradesh are dependent on tobacco cultivation which is profitable.
Brij Lal Singh , a farmer said "Earlier we used to make profits of 8,000-10,000 rupees ($176- 219) per acre but now we even don't earn even 3,000 ($66) from one acre"
Last year's floods had destroyed vast stretches of cropland.(ANI)
