Crops, mostly paddy, in 76,980 hectares are in water
As heavy rains continued to lash Andhra Pradesh due to 'Nilam' cyclonic storm, standing crops in about 77,000 hectares have been affected. "Crops, mostly paddy, in 76,980 hectares are in water. It is not that all of that crop is damaged. Once the water recedes, the district officials would enumerate and send reports," state Revenue Minister N Raghuveera Reddy said in a briefing today.
