Cardamom Production Forecasted to Plummet by 60% Amid Intense Summer Heatwave


Published on

According to AgriWatch ground information, cardamom production is expected to decrease by 60% in the coming months due to the plants wilting in the intense summer heat. This situation surpasses the severity of the drought experienced in 1983. Cardamom thrives in temperatures between 22 to 25 degrees Celsius, but the current temperature rise of more than 10 degrees Celsius has caused widespread wilting. Even if there's rain now, it won't alleviate the situation as replanting is necessary for the farmlands which is expected to happen in June-July.
