Farmers to cultivate paddy on 9 acres land left fallow

Eleven farmers, who had left their paddy fields fallow on Survey Number 169/4 at Sajipa Munnur village of Bantwal taluk fearing submergence of the fields, have decided to take up Rabi sowing (Kolake Saaguvali in local language) this year.

The farmers, in association with Karnataka Rajya Raitha Sangha, Hasiru Sene and progressive farmer Rajesh Nayak, have chalked out ‘Tulunada Krishi Kranthi’ programme to cultivate paddy on the fields which were left fallow.
Raitha Sangha and Hasiru Sene district unit organising secretary Manohar Shetty told Deccan Herald, “Fearing that the paddy field will be submerged in water, the farmers on the banks of river Nethravathi had stopped cultivation 13 years ago.
