Rabi crop prospects are favourable due to excessive post-monsoon rainfall: Report

An excess rainfall after the southwest monsoon season bodes well for rabi cropping . The produce is harvested from January to March, depending on the commoditys maturity .

In a study published on November 25, Crisil Ratings said that an excess rainfall after the southwest monsoon season bodes well for rabi cropping because it improves soil moisture and encourages optimal germination, and that the produce is harvested from January to March, depending on the commodity's maturity.According to the study, the current reservoir storage rate as a percent of total storage capacity in four of the country's five regions is not only above last year's level, but also above the 10-year average.Rabi sowing is largely dependent on the soil conditions, since irrigation for rabi crops such as wheat, gram, and mustard is not available during sowing.However, irrigation for these crops starts after 20-30 days after sowing.
