Sow short-duration paddy seeds, farmers told

Staff Reporter

PALAKKAD: District Collector A.T. James has urged farmers in the district to sow short-duration paddy seeds for the second crop as the long-duration seeds required irrigation water for more days, which would be difficult to supply.

He was speaking at the Project Advisory Committee meeting of the Chittur-Gayathri-Walayar irrigation schemes here on Tuesday.

K. Achuthan, MLA, urged the authorities to provide maximum water for irrigation of the paddy crop in February.
