Sowing of crops affected in the state

Let us inform that due to lack of rain in Maharashtra, sowing of Kharif crops has been affected. The state has received 41.4 per cent less rainfall till June 23 from the current south-west monsoon. Monsoon technically entered Maharashtra on June 10. However, the rains have been absolutely scant, with only sporadic showers, so most of the farmers have not sown. The main concern is about kharif pulses, especially moong (green gram) and urad (black gram), whose sowing time seems to be coming to an end.
