Andhra: Rains cause major crop damage in Guntur

Guntur : The continuous rains in the state of Andhra Pradesh have caused severe damage to the standing crops in Guntur district on Sunday morning.

The rains have added to the woes of the farmers, particularly paddy farmers who are worried about the low price for their crops.

The paddy crop, which is either ready for harvest or have been harvested already, are now in water due to heavy rains in the region from last two days.

While the standing crop fell to the ground and is entirely submerged in water, the harvested stack is submerged posing a threat of paddy getting discoloured.
