Farmers and the monsoon
Monsoon season in the country is unlikely to be influenced by El Nino as the weather pattern may not impact rains during September, Agriculture secretary Ashish Bahuguna said on Wednesday.
The Australian weather bureau said on Tuesday the latest weather indicators showed the weather pattern was edging closer.
Bahuguna also said this year's monsoon withdrawal in India could be delayed due to the late revival of the seasonal rains.
Monsoon rains in the country were 2 per cent below average in the week to August 22, but rainfall revived in rice, cane and oilseeds-growing areas of one of the world's leading food consumers and producers.
