Scanty rainfall to impact kharif crop
Our Correspondent

Ludhiana, July 23
According to the latest forecast update provided by the medium-range Weather Forecasting Centre, there are prospects of rain from tomorrow. However, the main impact of the monsoon will be in Central India while Punjab and the surrounding areas are expected to have isolated showers during the next five days.

Dr Lal Singh Brar, Professor and Head, Department of Agronomy and Agrometereology, Punjab Agricultural University, said the scanty rainfall during the current kharif season had aggravated the problem of irrigation water. Moreover, the electricity supply to the agriculture sector was also limited and erratic, resulting in huge expenditure to farmers for making alternative arrangements of fuel.

Experts of PAU have advised farmers not to transplant paddy at present and divert whatever irrigation water is available to the already transplanted crop so tat the desired yield can be obtained.
