India: Monsoon Recovery in August Improves Soil Moisture in Central India

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

The recovery of monsoon rain levels in August has led to improved soil moisture in Central India, which will bolster crop development. Kharif 2019 planting is 2 percent slower than last year, with planted area for all major crops lower except cotton. The Indian Meteorological Department forecasts intensive rains in the next few weeks, which could lead to flood damage in select areas. The cumulative rainfall for the southwest monsoon 2019 reported by the IMD is currently equal to the fifty-year average rainfall level.
