India: Monsoon Update June 2019

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

The pace of plantings for all major kharif crops is slower than last year as delayed monsoon rains and low reservoir storage levels have resulted in lower planted area. Monsoon rains across India for the month of June are 33 percent lower than the normal fifty-year average. However, the Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) forecasts widespread rainfall for the next two weeks across Central and Western India which will help increase the pace of sowings.
