Crops have also been damaged due to rain and hailstorm

On one hand, this accident happened during the rain and hailstorm on Monday night, while on the other hand, many trees and electric poles collapsed. Power supply is interrupted.

Rice, vegetables and fruits may suffer huge losses. The target is to cultivate paddy in 1,30,188 hectares in Patna district in the financial year 2022-23.

As of August, the rice planting area was 126,414 hectares. Agricultural scientist Dr. Shambhu Prasad said that in paddy producing areas where there is rain, storm and hailstorm, there is a possibility of damage to the paddy crop.

Apart from this, the pollination process of rice will also be affected. If rice falls in a wet field after being cooked, the moisture in the field can also cause damage to the rice.

Due to reduced yield, the yield of tall varieties of rice will also be affected. There will also be a delay in sowing of Rabi crops. Vegetable and wood crops were also damaged.

The paddy fields of Danapur suffered heavy damage. Traffic was affected due to falling of trees on the road in Naubatpur Nisapura.
