Agriculture Knowledge Centre urges farmers to wait for some days to get compensation

October 20, 2019

Chitwan, Oct 20  At a time when the farmers have begun clearing the hybrid rice that failed to produce ear in the district, the Agriculture Knowledge Centre here urged the farmers to wait for some more days, so that it would be easy to evaluate the loss. Chief of the Centre, Rajan Dhakal, said, “It will be difficult to evaluate the loss for the compensation if the farmers destroy the rice.” He also added that the imported hybrid rice named ‘Garima’ has begun yielding ear in some parts. According to him, it would take one more week to get the result of DNA test of the hybrid rice. However, the farmers began removing the rice, reasoning it would be late for them to prepare land for winter cultivation. It is said the Ministry of Agriculture and Livestock has assured compensation to the loss the farmers incurred with the imported species of rice. They would get compensation after the result of DNA test. The farmers in the eastern belt of Chitwan began clearing rice for it failed to produce ear. After rice harvest, mustard, beans and wheat seeds are sowed for winter crops.
