Published on: Jul 13 2022, 03:35
In Maharashtra, Sangli, Basmat, Hingoli and Nanded growing regions overall sowing has been completed due to good irrigation facilities and also received good rainfall during the sowing period.
In Maharashtra heavy rainfall has been reported in the last three days in Turmeric key growing areas also reported flash flood situations. It is likely expected that if rainfall would continue for the next few more days, water-logging situations may likely arise and high risks of crop damage may be witnessed.
As per AgriWatch intention, current year Turmeric sowing area may go down in AP, Telangana and Maharashtra as other competitive crops like Cotton and Maize prices are comparatively higher and both crops are short duration crops.
