Two more farmers of Miryalaguda mandal on Monday set fire to 14 acres of ‘domakadu' virus-infested paddy crop in Lavudi tanda under Tungapadu gram panchayat.

According to Miryalaguda MLA Julakanti Ranga Reddy, tribal farmers — Lavudi Sushila and Lavudi Naga — burnt eight and six acres of paddy crop respectively, as it was found to be useless, even for cattle to graze on.

They gave a representation to the Agriculture and Revenue officials on the damage suffered by them and seeking due compensation. On Sunday, a tribal, Saidulu, of Gopasamudram thanda had burnt four acres of paddy crop.
