Farmers are worried about the bananas being ripened in the tree as there are no hired workers. 1.50 lakh acres of land has been irrigated from the Mayanur gateway to the Karur District, through the Maranoor Gateway to the Karur District. About 75 percent of this is planted in banana, which is cultivated by farmers including bovan, karpooravalli, and nendram.
In this case, banana farmers have suffered a great deal of drought in the past four years. 90% of banana farmers were affected by the Gaja Storm. Today, echoing of the coronavirus, farmers who have planted bananas have been unable to cut their banana trees.
The Tamil Nadu government curfew has not been able to let the farmers cut the bananas even in their worst case scenario. Two days ago, the Tamil Nadu government ordered the farmers to sell their produce in the open market due to the difficulties of transporting agricultural inputs.
Accordingly, for the past 2 days, farmers in the Kudalailaya area have been allowed to cut bananas and sell them to the foreign market. Bananas are being cut down and taken away by a small vehicle. The Government of Tamil Nadu has requested to pay Rs 50,000 per acre to banana farmers for the losses incurred during the ban.
