The changing mood of the weather can once again increase the burden on the pockets of the common people. In fact, flood-like situation has arisen in many states of the country due to heavy rains and cyclones. In such a situation, there is a possibility of loss in many Kharif crops including onions.
In the latest report of Crisil Research, the price of onion has also been feared. According to report onion prices are expected to remain high during Oct-Nov. It said that due to delay in arrival of Kharif crop and short lifespan of goods kept in buffer stock due to cyclone, there is a possibility of increase in prices.
The Meteorological Department also expressed apprehension: The India Meteorological Department (IMD) and the National Meteorological Agency issued an alert on Saturday saying that floods may damage horticulture and standing crops in some areas. At the same time, growers say that rice fields have been submerged in water in many districts of Punjab, Haryana and Uttar Pradesh. In states like Uttarakhand, Bihar, West Bengal and Madhya Pradesh, crops have also been badly affected by the floods. These heavy rains have come at a time when the monsoon is usually on the verge of ending.
According to experts – If heavy rains continue, the yield may get affected, said Ashok Ranzen, a former agronomist with the Punjab Agriculture Department. At the same time, IMD has also predicted heavy rains.
