monsoon

After a delay of a week, monsoon hit the Kerala coast today, marking the official commencement of the four-month rainfall season in the country.

Amid the slowing economic growth, this comes as a bad news not only for the farming community but also for the policy makers as the ‘below average’ rainfall is likely to be a dampener for farm produce.

The Indian Metrological Department (IMD) on Monday predicted that quantitatively, the monsoon seasonal (June to September) rainfall is likely to be 96 per cent of the Long Period Average.
