This is only 31.5% of Kharif acreage. [P-35] Summary of the report is clipped here.

In 2013 Kharif year on July05 acreage Sown was 401.69 lakh hectares but in Drought year 2013 Acreage was almost half 215.07 lakh hectare.

THIS INDICATES DEPENDENCE OF INDIAN AGRICULTURE ON RAINFALL.

Out of 887mm Monsoon Rains Normal rains for today is 242.5mm or 27.3% – rainfall is only 221.3mm or 9% deficient Monsoon may intensify but delay in Sowing will impact Crop Yields.
