Monsoon 'good sign' for crop yields

The Telegraph

India's monsoon rainfall this season will be 102 per cent of the long-term average, skewed towards above normal, the national weather agency said on Monday, boosting expectations for good crop yields amid farmers' concerns about lockdown-linked cash shortages.

The India Meteorological Department (IMD) said rainfall during the monsoon season from June through September will be 102 per cent of the long-term average with a 66 per cent probability of normal or above normal rainfall.

The monsoon rains have already arrived over Kerala with multiple weather stations across the state reporting abundant rainfall, weather scientists also said, while releasing a revised long-range forecast for the 2020 monsoon.
