Paddy lands in Matale abandoned

A high number of barren paddy lands (273 acres) were identified in Matale, the recently held District Agriculture Committee Meeting at the District Secretariat disclosed.

For the last Maha season, 105 acres of the barren land were cultivated with paddy.

The rest will be cultivated in the next Maha season, a member said.

Over 50,000 acres in Matale are used for paddy cultivation. Paddy is also cultivated in uplands with rain water in the Maha season.
