Due to the lack of water availability in the canals, so far only 32 percent of farmers have been able to plant rice through private and government tube wells, while 68 percent of farmers have not been able to sow. Agronomists say the timing is right to sow rice. Therefore, farmers are concerned that rice will not be transplanted. Not planting in time can also affect production. Rice nurseries are also drying up due to a lack of water in the fields. Many farmers will not be able to sow rice due to the failure of the nursery.
There are two lakh 86 thousand hectares of arable land in the district. Except for canals that are irrigated by state and private tube wells. Most of the cropland is irrigated through canals. A total of 343 canals in the district irrigate a lakh of 66 thousand hectares of arable land. Farmers who cultivate from private and government tube wells have started transplanting rice fields, but farmers who have cultivated on the basis of canals have not been able to sow rice fields. The main reason for this is the lack of water in the canals. The planting of rice fields is hampered by the unavailability of water in the canals. For this reason, the rice nursery is also drying up. If water is not released in the canals soon, many farmers will not be able to sow rice fields. On the other hand, the target of growing rice in an area of ​​47 thousand 84 hectares was set by the district’s Ministry of Agriculture. So far, rice has been planted on only 47 thousand 67 hectares. So far, no rice has been planted on a lakh of 17 thousand hectares. Dr. Narendra Raghuvanshi, scientist at Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Amihit, says July is the right time to plant rice. During this month, the early rice crop should be transplanted by July 15th. If for some reason farmers cannot transplant rice, they can transplant rice using the Sanda method. He said July 15-30 is the time for transplanting medium and late rice fields. On the other hand, Ashish Kumar Kushwaha, chief engineer at the Department of Irrigation, says there has been a lack of water due to less rain. This means that no water is released into the channels. Soon water will be released in the canals. There is also constant correspondence. So that rice can be planted.
