  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

On August 1, 2019, the Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) published its long-range forecast for the second half of the southwest monsoon (August to September), predicting normal rainfall for 2019. The rainfall level is expected to be consistent with the long period average (LPA). Overall planting for Kharif 2019 season is 6 percent slower than the same period last year due to delayed rains during the first half of the monsoon. The monsoon later intensified during the last week of July leading to an increase in the pace of sowings in Central and Southern India and reducing the overall rainfall deficit.
