N24 Correspondent, JHAPA:- According to the Agriculture Knowledge Center Jhapa, the production of paddy in Jhapa will decrease by at least 60,000 metric tonnes due to the continuous weather since Monday night.

Shalikram Bhattarai, an agronomist at the Center, said that the paddy was planted in the farmers’ fields, potted and the cooked paddy was submerged in water.

He informed the media that there would be a huge drop in production due to wind blowing the planted paddy plants. In Jhapa, paddy was cultivated in 86,500 hectares. According to him, more than 13,000 hectares of paddy crop are lying on the ground due to the weather. According to the Agriculture Knowledge Center Jhapa, 16 percent paddy crop has been damaged in Jhapa.
