Strong winds and rains damage 3,000ha of fruit & veg crops in India
Rain and winds in Maharashtra, India in May have damaged close to 3,000 hectares of crops, mainly tomatoes, onions, mangoes and grapes, preliminary data from the state agriculture department has revealed.
A senior official from the state agriculture department said that crops on 2,500 to 3,000 hectares have been damaged in at least seven districts, including Pune, Sindhudurg, Ahmednagar, Jalgaon, Nashik, Solapur and Satara.
"Standing crops in fields in the current season include vegetables and fruits. Though most mangoes were already harvested in Konkan, there are several regions in the state that harvest mangoes in May and June. Mango crops in such places were damaged due to inclement weather," the official said.
Crops that were damaged included tomatoes, onions, mangoes, grapes, banana and pomegranate. Shriram Gadhave, president, All-India Vegetable Growers Association, said that crops over 10,000 acres in north Pune, particularly in blocks Junnar and Ambegaon, were damaged.
