Rabi crop sowing low this year

Crop sowing in the ongoing winter (rabi) season is lagging behind this year, with the acreage sown of most major crops lower than usual for this time of year. Overall, 21% less acreage has so far been sown, according to the data released by the Agriculture Ministry on Friday. Wheat, the major winter crop, has been sown on just 51 lakh hectares this year, as against the average 85 lakh hectares in the corresponding week over the last five years. That is a drop of almost 40%. However, compared to last year, the decrease is only 5%.
