KRRS seeks fresh survey to assess crop loss – Karnataka – The Hindu

Darur Purushotam Goud, president of the district unit of the Karnataka Rajya Raitha Sangha (KRRS) and Hasiru Sene, has demanded a fresh survey to assess the crop loss in the kharif and rabi seasons.Addressing presspersons here on Sunday, he said that almost all crops on dry land were affected owing to the failure of follow-up rains and farmers had incurred losses.Crops in the Tungabhadra command area, particularly cotton and chilli, with irrigation cover provided by the high-level canal on the right bank of the Tungabhadra dam, were also getting affected owing to the non-availability of water in the dam.
