Southwest monsoon has arrived in many parts of the country bringing rays of hope to the farmer’s life and hard work.  Monsoon rains prove to be a boon for farming. Hence, farmers across the country have been eagerly waiting for the Monsoon rain. The rains in many parts of Uttar Pradesh has brought smile on the faces of farmers. Farmers have started preparations of kharif crops sowing with full swing. Farmers believe that monsoon rains will increase the yield of Kharif crops this year.  

Monsoon will help in Sowing of Paddy 

Although due to monsoon rains, there will be a huge loss to vegetable crops, it will give great relief to the farmers who are engaged in paddy cultivation. Most of the farmers of the country have started preparations for planting paddy nursery. Monsoon rains and strong winds are providing huge relief to the people from the scorching heat along with providing rays of hope to the barren farming lands. 

Along with this, farmers are in hope of getting more yields from Kharif season crops. 

Monsoon will harm Gourd and Nenua crops 

However, farmers need to take care of these things in the monsoon, otherwise, it may destroy their whole hard work. Agricultural scientists say that monsoon rains are very beneficial for the farmers as farmers can cultivate many crops including paddy nursery, arhar. But, gourd and Nenua crops may suffer heavy losses due to monsoon rains. In fact, monsoon rains can harm these crops. However, many farmers have started cultivating Kharif crops as monsoon can knock at any time this year. 

When Monsoon will arrive?  

As per reports, the arrival of monsoon will be a little late this year. However, Southwest monsoon arrived in many parts of South India, but it will take time to reach North and western part off India. According to Skymet Weather, the monsoon usually arrives in the first week of June, but this time the monsoon may arrive by the second week of June.
