Indian farmers fear losing crops due to delay in monsoons
New Kerala, July 11, 2004
Farmers in Gujarat are on the verge of losing their season's crops as the monsoons, after hitting the region on time, are now playing hide and seek.

Farmers of Panchamahal and Dahod districts in the state sowed gram and pulses after the first showers of monsoon in late June. They say that water is required within 25 days of sowing crops, otherwise the saplings dry out and the first crops will be destroyed. The farmers are desperately waiting for rains as they have borrowed money to sow seeds.

"I spent a lot on agriculture, and now the entire crop has been destroyed. We are totally helpless. We expect the government to help us," said Ganpat Singh Patel, a farmer.

Pratap Bhai Patel, another farmer, said: "If there are no showers, we'll be bankrupt."

According to an estimate, the total loss due to the destruction of crops is about 70.5 million rupees.
