When is monsoon more active?

The monsoon is more active during the last days of June. Pre-monsoon occurs in the first week of June before it becomes active and this gives farmers time to prepare their fields.

In modern times, farmers have started plowing with tractors instead of plows and oxen. The farmers are using modern technique and tools for farming and with time the relationship of bullocks to farming is no longer special. Earlier, bulls were used in farming, but in the changing times the use of bulls has reduced considerably. This has been possible due to the pre monsoon. Due to the monsoon rain, it has become easier for the farmers to plow the field. As long as the monsoon is active, the crops are sown till then the rain yields good yield.
