The heavy rains that swept across parts of Theni district in the past few days destroyed 6,000 ha of banana plantations at Angurpalayam near Cumbum. The unexpected rain since Thursday has doomed the prospects of farmers, most of whom had borrowed heavily to grow the crop. Banana plantations were affected in many other places such as Gudalur, Uthamapalayam, Kombai and Thevaram.
