Rajkot, Oct 29 (ANI): Farmers sold off their groundnut and cotton yields to avoid any impact on their crops from cyclone Nilofar, which is expected to hit Gujarat coast in a couple of days. Nilofar, classified as a 'very severe cyclonic storm', is expected to weaken to a 'cyclonic storm' when it makes landfall on the Gujarat coast, according to the Indian Meteorological Department. Farmers are preparing for any untoward incident as Nilofar, which originated in the Arabian Sea, is likely to make a landfall on the coastal areas of Saurashtra and Kutch regions. Farmers from various villages gathered in Rajkot city market to sell off their stocks. Around 18,000 sacks of crops were brought for sale.
