Balangir;The  effort  of government  to promote Hybrid  maize cultivation in Balangir  district suffered a setback as the  maize cultivated by villagers of Upparjhar andNuanpali in Degoan block, did not bear fruit leaving  farmers to suffer a heavy loss
This year the agriculture department had given us JKMH-502seeds in June this year and we had cultivated it while villagers of Nuanpali had cultivated in 200hectares in Upparjhar village it has been taken up in 250acres said a villager.
There is hardly any maize seedin the maize fruit , in the plant and out of the100maize trees, in a field, maize has come up in barely 20plant and that too in small size alleged another villagers.

We informed this to agriculture official who advised us to wait for some time and it would grow further, alleged a villager.
