Update from Visit by AID, CSA and Rythu Swarajya Vedika team
Hudhud Affected Farmlands
There is a huge crop damage and livelihoods affected because of the ‪#‎HudHud‬ paddy is the most affected crop as the crop was in milking state to ready to harvest in different locations almost 95% damage observed in most of the areas, more than 30% damage in mango orchards particularly older ones, coconut trees are also affected severely. both mango and coconut farmers have lost the crop completely for the next one year. in tribal belts and hill regions of vishakapatnam, vijayanagaram and srikakulam also the crops are being affected and farmers are not very hopeful of receiving any compensation.
 

In tribal areas the credit and crop insurance access was very low. They took loans from private money lenders with higher interest rates (Rs. 2-5/month/100)
"The state government has hiked compensation to crops like sugarcane and paddy to Rs 10,000 to Rs 15,000 per hectare, for Banana from Rs 24,000 to Rs 25,000 and from Rs 15,000 from Rs 20,000 for mango crop per hectare", While the TDP was demanding Hooda Commission recommendations while in opposition which would be Rs. 25,000/ha for paddy.
Reviving livelihoods and helping farmers with the rabi preparations supporting them with seeds etc is something which govt should take it up for all.
