India: Kharif Planting Was Slow As Monsoon Was Delayed

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

Delayed rains and low reservoir levels have led to a ten percent lower Kharif crop planting than the normal five year average during the southwest monsoon (June to September). Pan-India rainfall is eight percent below the long-term average, but the forecast of a normal monsoon and its rapid progression across India is expected to support and improve the pace of planting. Additionally, the Government of India announced the Minimum Support Price (MSP) for the 2018/19 Kharif season.
