Quick Summary AI Powered

Till June 24, acreage of all major crops was less than last year.

This is because farmers waited for rains to settle down before going in for planting as rice requires more water than other crops.

Cotton was almost 4 per cent higher than the same period last year and coarse cereals around 2 per cent more.
