New Delhi, Apr 11 (PTI) In a relief for the agriculture sector, India is expected to get normal rainfall during the southwest monsoon season despite the evolving El Nino conditions, the India Meteorological Department (IMD) said on Tuesday.

The IMD prediction comes just a day after a private forecasting agency, Skymet Weather, predicted “below-normal” monsoon rains in the country.

Rainfed agriculture is a critical component of India’s agricultural landscape, with 52 percent of the net cultivated area relying on this method. It accounts for about 40 percent of the country’s total food production, making it a crucial contributor to India’s food security and economic stability.
