  • Over the period of next 48 hours, a low-pressure area is expected to emerge over the central regions of the Bay of Bengal as it moves north-westward.
  • This north-west movement of the CC furtherly with a Low-Pressure-Area could possibly result in a wet weather conditions over Coastal AP and Odisha.
  • There is a good chance of isolated heavy rainfall, thunderstorms, and lightning over coastal Odisha, Yanam, and north coastal Andhra Pradesh around 23-24rth October.
  • Coastal regions of Andhra Pradesh like Visakhapatnam, Vizayanagaram, Kakinada, Krishna, Guntur etc., are expected to receive widespread rain around 23-25 October.

  • The Cyclonic System is expected to reach up to Odisha coast and may result in heavy rainfall at coastal regions of Odisha.
  • The impact of this weather system may also reach up to Jharkhand, West Bengal and adjoining regions and produce moderate-heavy showers in some regions between 25-27 Oct.
  • Additionally, a trough is passing from the above-mentioned cyclonic circulation across the Southeast Bay of Bengal to the Comorin Area, crossing Sri Lanka.
  • Kerala is expected to receive widespread rains with associated thunderstorms for more 1-2 days.
  • Tamil Nadu, Puducherry, Karaikal regions are to receive isolated showers for next 1-2 days.
  • Karnataka may receive isolated scattered rainfall for next 1-2 days.

Advisory to Farmers:

  • Farmers are advised to complete the sowing of Toria and Mustard. Make proper arrangements for water conservation around the field.
  • Before sowing the mustard seeds, it should be treated with Carbendazim @ 2 gm/kg or Thiram @ 3 gm/kg of seed.
  • Nursery preparation can be started for the cauliflower varieties and raise the seedlings in shade net house.
  •  To control Neck Blast diseases in paddy first drain out excess water from the paddy field. Spray Hexaconazole @ 400-ml/acre or Azoxystrobin+ Difenoconazole @ 200-ml/acre or Tebuconazole + Trifloxystrobin @ 80-gram/acre.
  • Stop irrigating the paddy crop before a fortnight to maintain the optimum grain moisture, facilitate easy harvesting and timely sowing of succeeding crop in the same field.
  • Farmers are advised to harvest maize as soon as the crop matures to avoid damage due to rain, and store them in a dry and safe place.
  • It is best time for sowing of spinach, fenugreek, coriander, radish, turnip, garlic and early varieties of pea i.e., Matar Ageta7 and AP-3.

Technology - Advising Farmers and Crop Yield Assesment

Food security in the light of climate change is a global imperative. In developing nations, the problem is exacerbated by variable weather, lack of reliable extension services to optimize yield and fair market access. In India, most farmers do not have access to weather advisory forecasts that are hyper local to their field and timely in nature. As all farming activities are heavily dependent on weather, decisions on application of fertilizers and pesticide, irrigation, and even plucking of fruits & vegetables and harvesting cannot be taken efficiently. In addition, significant crop losses, that are entirely preventable, accrue through adverse weather events. Crop advisory services, where available, are generic and not pegged to a farmer's seed variety, date of sowing, and growing conditions and hence do not dispense timely, actionable advice, directly relevant to a farmer. Likewise, market trends pertinent to their particular crop and location


India is poised to have a good monsoon this year. It can be seen for the NOAA graph of Fig. 1 below. El Nino conditions are changing to La Nina from May June July. Fig. 1: ENSO Probabilities by NOAA This year, the Southwest Monsoon is anticipated to arrive in extreme parts of South-SE Bay around the first week of May, gradually progressing northward. Seasonal Forecast as given by IRI in Fig. 2 below. Fig. 2: Seasonal Forecast by IRI Regional Outlook: The monsoon season may extend into early October this year. Western and Northwestern India: Above-normal to excess rainfall is possible over most parts of Western and Northwestern India, including Gujarat, Rajasthan, Punjab, Maharashtra, Telangana, Madhya Pradesh, and Chhattisgarh. This increased Rains is likely to raise concerns for potential flooding, especially during the peak and late monsoon seasons. Rains are likely to be favorable to all Kharif Crops.
