Farmers alleged that the paddy harvest has dropped significantly this Yala season.

They complained that the problem has arisen due to the cultivation of seeds provided by the Agrarian Services Department.

Farmers in areas such as Laggala and Wilgamuwa in the Matale District are currently harvesting paddy during the Yala season, and their yields have dropped significantly this year.

They stated that they cultivated a variety of seeds distributed by the Agrarian Services Department.

Farmers also alleged that the crop has been severely damaged due to worms, caterpillars, mites and other insects.

Farmers in Wilgamuwa and Laggala areas have been using organic fertilizer this year.

But farmers stated that they have not been made aware of how to get a successful harvest.
