Dharwad: The unseasonal rains that have been pelting the district for the past three days have destroyed agriculture crops on 21,344 hectares and horticulture crops on 8,759 hectares, according to Deputy Commissioner Nitesh Patil.

On Sunday afternoon, he went to Pashupatihal, Saunshi, and Gudgeri villages to evaluate the damage caused by the rains in those villages, as well as farm areas to assess crop damage.

He said that officials from the revenue, agriculture, and horticulture departments had begun a joint crop loss survey, which would continue tomorrow.

Cotton was grown on 68,000 hectares in this Kharif season, and it was ready for harvest, according to the DC, but he suspected that the crop had been damaged owing to unexpected rainfall.

The DC was accompanied by Assistant Commissioner Dr. Gopalkrishna B and officials from the horticulture and agriculture departments.
