Farmers in North India pray for monsoon in fear of drought

Nagpur /Moradabad, June 25 (ANI): Farmers in Maharashtra and Uttar Pradesh prayed for monsoon as they feared drought like situation. Farmers, in Nagpur city, were experiencing difficult times as they had sown seeds hoping for downpour but were left high and dry. Earlier, their yield was marred by extreme drought, untimely rain or hail storm. A farmer, Moti Singh Deo said they were losing hope of monsoon as the crops were dying. The monsoon has covered half of India's landmass four days behind the usual schedule, failing to recover from a late start that has slowed sowing of summer crops in a country where half of the farmland still lacks irrigation. Millions of small farmers are struggling to survive as erratic weather hits their only source of income. Meanwhile, meteorological scientist, RD Meshram said monsoon system was weak over Bay of Bengal. Jun 25, 2014
