Skymet predicts normal monsoon

Friday, April 06, 2018

The prediction of the meteorological department of forecasting 110 per cent rains is a welcome news. As per the weather report, there is no chance of drought this year. If it is normal, the country will record nearly 900 mm for the period of June to September this year. The onset month of June and the withdrawal month of September give a promising picture in terms of good countrywide rainfall distribution. Normal rainfall in the country is critical for rice, cane, corn, cotton and soybean cultivation. To start with, the month of June will have excess rainfall and they may not cause anxiety of delay in monsoon setting up in the state in general, and the country in particular. Even September is going to have normal rainfall and could exceed the 100 mm mark and it is a welcome news. Now it is time to manage water resources available to our advantage instead of playing the blame game about floods.
