Big onion harvest ruined by rain (pics) Featured

Heavy rains have ruined the big onion harvest in Dambulla, Galewela, Sigiriya, Habarana and Naula areas.

Farmers say the rains started falling just days before harvesting was due to begin.

Even the harvested big onions are facing ruin due to the rains, with the farmers burying the stocks that have gone bad.

No responsible government official has so far visited these farmers.

Noting that they had to pawn their jewelry to find money to cultivate the land, the farmers request authorities to grant them compensation or give them more time to repay loans.
