As per IMD’s latest monsoon update, the 2024 Southwest monsoon seasonal (June to September) rainfall over the country as a whole is most likely to be above normal (>104% of the Long Period Average (LPA)). Quantitatively, the seasonal rainfall over the country as a whole is likely to be 106% of LPA with a model error of ± 5%. If, this happens to be true, it would help in enhancing the Kharif sowing particularly Tur, Moong & Urad which are attracting higher prices since couple of years over abnormal weather conditions.
