Harvesting Season in Jaffna Begins
[Updated :: 2011-01-31 16:38:10 Hours]

Paddy farmers in Jaffna have now started collecting their harvest for the Maha season.

The total acreage of paddy lands cultivated in Jaffna is 10520 hectares in this season and expected harvest will exceed 38600 metric tons, according to Mr. Shiva Kumar, Deputy Director of Agriculture Department, Jaffna. The expected harvest is an increase by 12000 metric tons compared to the previous year.

Recent torrential rain and flood that played havoc in many parts of the island did not affect Jaffna cultivations.

Removing High Security Zones with paddy lands, resettlement of IDPs in their original homesteads, accelerated de-mining, construction of concrete barges in many areas to block lagoons flowing into fresh water that feeds arable lands and fertilizer relief has helped increase the harvest.
