The flood-affected farmers will get seed paddy and fertilizer totally free for their cultivation for the next Maha season.
Some media had reported that there will be a scarcity of paddy seeds in the flood hit areas particularly Batticaloa and Ampara districts with the country facing a future paddy shortage. Batticaloa Divisional Secretary K Rushanthan told the Daily News that no farmers will suffer though their lands were affected. Almost 80 percent of the paddy lands in Batticaloa were destroyed.
