Keonjhar, Nov 19: The incessant rain lashing several parts of Keonjhar district since three days was reportedly damaged the standing paddy crop.
Much of the paddy has been left to rot in the farmland. The famers had cut the crops in the farmland with a lot of efforts, but the unseasonal rains spoiled their hopes.
Many of the farmers lamented that all their money and hard labour invested in the paddy farming have been washed away.
Farmers stocked paddy in their yard after harvesting, but the seeds have germinated following incessant rains.
