Kaliabor farmers likely to reap bumper harvest

By Correspondent

KALIABOR, Oct 28 � Eighty per cent of the families under the Kaliabor subdivision are dependent on agriculture. At the beginning of the monsoon this year, most of the farmers were dejected due to heavy rainfall and excessive water in the fields. But in the peak time during July and August, the weather became favourable as a result of which most of the farmers of Chatial, Borbhagiya and Pubtharia mauzas and others cultivated their land with varieties of crops.

Now it has become clear that due to favourable weather in the area, the farmers under Kaliabor subdivision are likely to harvest bumper crops in the fields, particularly in the mouzas mentioned above. At present, they are preparing to harvest their early crops.

In this connection, mention may be made that the farmers are facing great insecurity due to possible wild elephant havoc. A herd of wild elephants consisting of about 100 members along with calves are devouring crops in the Sakmotea TE and nearby areas, Dolpukhuri Gorubandha and Sakmothigaon areas. The herd is likely to enter large paddy fields at Dalgaon, Borbhagiya, Banaligaon, Garikeri, etc.

If the Forest department and the civil administration at Kaliabor do not take proper steps in advance, the farmers will face difficulties in harvesting their crops. The wild elephant herd will create havoc and destroy crops, it is feared.

In view of this, the public and senior citizens have urged the authorities concerned to come forward to help the farmers in harvesting their crops by driving out the herd of wild elephants from the area at an early date.
