 Status of monsoon, Progress in kharif Sowing and Agromet Advisories for some

Deficit/Excess rainfall Areas

 

1. Status of southwest monsoon

 

During 1 June – 17 September, country as a whole received 774  mm rainfall, which is

6% deficit compared to the normal rainfall of the country for the same period (825 mm). Districts which received rainfall less than 50% of normal during 1 June - 17 September were identified and depicted in Figure 1, Table 2 & 3.

 

2.  Progress  in  kharif  sowing  (Source:  Press  Information  Bureau  and  Ministry  of agriculture and Farmers’ Welfare, Govt. of India)

 

The total sown area of major crops as on 17th September, 2017 (as per reports received from states), stands at 1041 lakh hectare as compared to 1050 lakh hectare, as on this date last year (Table 1).

3. Agromet Advisories Deficit rainfall areas Maharashtra

Rainfall received in major meteorological sub-divisions of the state are as follows:

Vidarbha – 652 mm (27% deficit); Marathwada – 573 mm (4% deficit); Madhya Maharashtra -

745 mm (16% surplus) and Konkan - 2768 mm (equal to normal)

 

The extended range weather forecast provided for next two weeks (15-21 and 22-28

September) for different subdivisions of Maharashtra are: Vidarbha (above normal for both weeks); Marathwada (above normal and normal); Madhya Maharashtra (above normal and normal) and Konkan (above normal and normal).

 

Vidarbha

 

•    As  above  normal  rainfall  is  forecasted  for  both  the  weeks,  undertake  harvesting  of matured green gram/black gram and store the produce in safe storage

•    Undertake  intercultural  operations  (weeding/hoeing)  in  cotton/pigeonpea  to  control weeds and improve surface tilth for better rain water conservation. At the last hoeing, open furrow between two rows by tying the ropes to hoe for better in-situ conservation of rainwater, particularly in late sown condition.

•    Withhold the irrigation, application of fertilizers and plant protection chemicals as above normal rainfall is forecasted, unless it is necessary.

 

Madhya Pradesh

 

East Madhya Pradesh has received 699 mm rainfall (29% deficit) and West Madhya

Pradesh has received 631 mm rainfall (22% deficit), so far during the season.

 

The extended range weather forecast provided for next two weeks (15-21 and 22-28

September) for different subdivisions of Madhya Pradesh are: East Madhya Pradesh (normal and above normal); West Madhya Pradesh (normal and above normal). The following advisories may be followed after the forecasted spell of normal rainfall.

 

•    Soybean: Due to cloudy weather and high temperature, the infestation of stem fly was observed in the fields. Apply Dimethoate 30 EC 650 ml or Thiomethoxam 25 WG @ 100 gram per

hectare.

•    Paddy: The crop is at ear head emergence stage. Infestation of gundhi bug is reported in the fields. Apply quinalphos 25 EC @ 1 liter per hectare to control it.

 

Uttar Pradesh

 

Western UP has received 443 mm (38% deficit) and Eastern UP has received 590 mm

(28% deficit) rainfall so far during the season.

 

The extended range weather forecast provided for next two weeks (15-21 and 22-28

September) for different subdivisions of Uttar Pradesh are: Western UP (below normal, above normal); Eastern UP (below normal, above normal).

 

•     As subdued rainfall has caused moisture stress, provide irrigation wherever possible to paddy and maize.

•     Wherever  maize  is  in  maturity  stage,  harvesting  is  advised  as  above  normal  rainfall  is forecasted during 22-28 Sept.

 

•   Wherever root weevil infestation is noticed in paddy, apply Phorate-10 G @ 10 kg/ha.

Haryana, Chandigarh & Delhi

 

The sub-division has received 312 mm rainfall so far during the season, which is 29% deficit compared to the normal rainfall for the same period. The extended range weather forecast provided for next two weeks (15-21 and 22-28 September) for Haryana, Chandigarh & Delhi is: below normal and above normal, respectively.

 

Haryana

 

•    As below normal rainfall is forecasted in the coming week, apply irrigation to paddy as the crop is at ear development stage.

 

•    Cotton: present weather condition is congenial for incidence of myrothecium leaf spot and bacterial blight in Western Haryana. To control these, spray 800 gram copper oxychloride in 250 liter water per acre, during clear sky conditions.
