Pesticides sales witnessed a steep rise in Guntur, India

Despite the India Guntur government laying emphasis on organic farming , it seems that farmers across the state are not convinced of switching over to the low-cost cultivation system.

The farmers in Guntur district, who are known to use the high quantity of pesticides in the country, are still continuing with this practice.The 

While 115 tonnes of pesticides were used in East Godavari, it is 110 tonnes in West Godavari. The sale of pesticides in the district witnessed a steep rise during the recently concluded crop season.The sales of pesticides increased by 13 per cent, as compared with the last year, according to sources.

Surprisingly, the use of pesticides is almost equal in both upland areas and delta region.

While farmers in upland areas grow cotton, chilli and pulses, their counterparts in the delta region produce paddy and other food grains.According to sources in the pesticide distribution sector, pink bollworm on cotton resulted in the high use of pesticide during the rabi season.
