Dr JPS Dabas, Principal Scientist, Indian Agricultural Research Institute, Pusa, said that where there is rain, there will be damage to the crop. The mustard crop is about to get ready. A sudden rise in temperature after rain will cause damage to the mustard crop. Where wheat is sown late, the wheat crop will benefit. Vine crops of vegetables will be damaged by rain. So farmers need to be alert.
