New Delhi: Farmers are worried over weak monsoon. With little rainfall over the central, western and northern parts of the country, India’s monsoon rains witnessed 35 per cent below average in the week ending on Wednesday.
Many regions in the country are receiving deficient rainfall, so if the rains do not pick up, then, India may face drought this year.
Since the monsoon season began on June 1, overall India has received rains 19 per cent less than average.
Monsoon is crucial for farmers and economic growth in India, and its deficiency makes the situation worse. India’s about 55 per cent arable land is rain-fed, and rain scarcity affects the farm output, and the livelihood of the people rely on them.
