Farmers in Gujarat are once again concerned about their crops, as the Meteorological Department has forecasted unseasonal rains and thunderstorms in North Gujarat, South Gujarat, and Saurashtra from March 13 to 15.
Crops in the state were damaged just a few days ago due to unseasonal rains. Thunderstorms and strong winds have also been predicted for this time period.
Districts Affected by the Forecasted Unseasonal Rains
As per the forecast, Banaskantha, Patan, and Mehsana of North Gujarat may witness rain, while Dang, Valsad, Navsari, Tapi, and Dahod of South Gujarat may also experience unseasonal rains. Bhavnagar, Amreli, and Kutch of Saurashtra are also predicted to receive rain. Additionally, there is a possibility of cloudy weather in Ahmedabad and Gandhinagar of Central Gujarat.
Concerns of Crop Failure Due to Unseasonal Rain
Farmers are concerned about crop failure due to unseasonal rains, which could result in financial losses. Even though the country is entering a hot spell, the Western Disturbance can still have an impact on the weather. The forecast of unseasonal rains has alarmed farmers who have already suffered crop damage as a result of the previous spell of unseasonal rain.
