Wet famine, new diseases give sleepless nights to farmers of Gogalwadi

As crop failure becomes a norm, farmers in Maharashtra struggle to get access to crop insurance schemes for which online applications should be submitted

"Look at these rotten tomatoes. Forget taking a basketful to sell in the market, even finding a few that are good enough to consume has become a task," said Sashikant Ramdas Gogawale, a farmer from Gogalwadi in Pune's Haveli taluka.

This year, ola dushkal (wet famine) has rendered a blow to the farmers, who are already facing the after-effects of crop damage during the pandemic. Wet famine is characterised by a shortage of food resources due to too much rain. It is a condition where crops, fruits or vegetables on a farm are damaged, making them completely unfit for consumption or sale.
