Huge quantities of produce were wasted as there were no places to sell them. Prolonged enforcement of the lockdown, scarcity of water and transport will definitely upset the crop cycles especially in areas like Toubul, Khoijuman and Kwasiphai of Bishnupur district known for producing vegetable items that cater to almost 50 per cent the population of Manipur has lost 80 % of their production.
