RUKUM: Framers in Rukum district have not been able to cultivate the summer crops this time due to drought. The farmers should have sown maize by this time of the year. But there are no signs of this now due to the drought. Last year, the farmers here had already completed cultivating maize and their farms were full of greenery, but not this time around.
A long spell of drought has become of cause of concern for the farmers here as they are unable to sow maize which is the staple crop of this rugged hilly district. Drought conditions are especially pronounced in around a dozen VDCs in the west and north of the district. RSS
