The changing weather has increased the concern of the farmers.. Serious damage to the wheat crop in these areas, contact here
Crop loss in rain: Agriculture has always been skeptical. A sudden change in the weather is causing damage to the crops, as an economic crisis is beginning to loom over the farmers. Last year itself, thousands of acres of crops were damaged due to the vagaries of the weather in the Khareef season. Even in February of this year, due to the sudden rise in temperature, possibilities such as reducing the wheat crop appeared. Now in the month of March, rains and hailstorms in many places are again raising farmers’ concerns. In many districts of Punjab, Haryana and Rajasthan, wheat crops have been damaged by rains, strong winds and hailstorms.
Wheat is being harvested in many areas, but as the weather changes, farmers have postponed harvesting. On the one hand, harvested crops are destroyed in the field. The crops standing there are also bent by the strong wind.
Loss of wheat crop in Haryana
The change in the weather over the past two days has raised the concerns of farmers in Punjab and Haryana. In most areas in both states, wheat crops were swayed by high winds. Agricultural experts advised farmers to stop irrigation in the wheat crop now, because this increases the chances of the wheat crop falling. It is a time of strong winds and rains, so there will be no fungicide spraying to prevent brown rust in the crop. It will wash automatically with rain.
Will wheat production really go down?
A few days ago, the Indian Meteorological Department predicted strong winds, rain, lightning and hailstorms in most districts of Punjab, Haryana, Chandigarh, Delhi, Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh. At present, wheat is still in its ripening stage, so the possibility of reducing wheat production in many places has also increased. If the situation worsens, wheat production in the country may be below target. This will not only put farmers in an economic crisis but will also affect the storage of wheat in the country.
