This year Monsoon has been affected by EL Nino, with a large deficiency of rainfall. Due to August dry spell, crops like cotton, soybean, guar, Bajra and til in Rajasthan had severely been affected. Farmers are now preparing to sow fennel and fenugreek as their ideal sowing time is approaching. Meanwhile, light-moderate rainfalls are anticipated over some regions of Rajasthan before the withdrawal of Monsoon.
Let us review how these rainfall conditions are going to Favour sowing of Fennel and Fenugreek.
- Regions like, Bhilwara, Dausa, pratapgad, Tonk etc., are forecast with light-moderate rainfall during next 3-4 days.
- Fennel(saunf) growing regions of Rajasthan like Sawai Madhopur, Dausa, Tonk, etc., are likely to receive moderate rainfall during September 24-26.
- Jalore and sirohi are also expected with light rainfall.
- Fenugreek growing regions like Bikaner, Jodhpur, Churu are much likely to receive light-moderate rainfall during September 24-25.
- Sikar, Jhunjhunu regions are anticipated to receive rainfall during September 24-25, and Nagaur region on September 26.
- These rainfall conditions would help in sowing of Fenugreek and Fennel by adding up the soil moisture and improving the germination.
- As it is the final period of Monsoon, rainfalls in these areas would last probably only till 26-27 September and will be taking a withdrawal later.
Advisory to Farmers:
- Farmers to wait until the end of September in order to proceed with sowing, to avoid drowning and rotting of seed due to rainfall.
