1. Status of southwest monsoon

                                           During 1 June – 24 September, country as a whole received 819 mm rainfall, which is 5% deficit compared to the normal rainfall of the country for the same period (859 mm).

Deficit rainfall areas


Maharashtra

                                        Rainfall received in major meteorological sub-divisions of the state are as follows:Vidarbha – 727 mm (22% deficit); Marathwada – 640 mm (2% deficit);Madhya Maharashtra -830 mm (20% surplus) and Konkan - 3152 mm (11% surplus)

Vidarbha

  • For control of leaf eating caterpillar in pigeon pea, spray Quinalphos 25 EC @ 16 ml per 10 litres of water after current spells of rain.
  • Farmers can harvest matured black gram, as below normal rainfall is forecasted in coming week.

Madhya Pradesh

     East Madhya Pradesh has received 792 mm rainfall (23% deficit) and West Madhya Pradesh has received 740 mm rainfall (14% deficit), so far during the season.

  • Soybean: Early maturing cultivars like JS 95-60 may be harvested, if all the leaves turned yellow and dry. In medium to late maturing cultivars, there are chances of stem fly infestation due to cloudy weather and high temperature. Application of insecticides like Dimethoate 30 EC @ 0.03% is advised in the second week.
  •  As rainfall is forecasted during the coming week, farmers are advised to keep the harvested crop in safe place
  • Vegetables: To control sucking pest spray thiamethoxam or acetamiprid @ 0.35- 0.45 gm/l. To control shoot and fruit borer in okra, tomato and brinjal, spray Triazophos @ 2.0 ml/l. solution in the second week.
       • To control leaf roller in pigeon pea, apply Indoxacarb@ 5ml/10 litre water in the second week.

Uttar Pradesh

     Western UP has received 530 mm (30% deficit) and Eastern UP has received 647 mm (26% deficit) rainfall so far during the season.

  • 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 during second week.

Haryana, Chandigarh & Delhi

    The sub-division has received 312 mm rainfall so far during the season, which is 30% deficit compared to the normal rainfall for the same period.

Haryana

  • Paddy: Plant hoppers can be controlled by spraying 40 ml of Confidor 17.8 SL in 100 litres of water per acre during second week.
  • Cotton: Avoid moisture stress during flowering and boll formation stages. Withhold irrigation during first week, as above normal rainfall is forecasted, unless necessary.
