Weak monsoon delays cotton, soybean sowing in India

Updated : June 22, 2018 06:55 PM IST

Lower production of soybean could force India to raise imports of edible oils such as palm oil and soyoil, while a drop in cotton production could limit the world's biggest fibre producer's exports.
Cotton sowing has been delayed in western states of Gujarat and Maharashtra, the country's top two producers of the fibre, as rainfall wasn't sufficient for sowing, said Atul Ganatra, president of the Cotton Association of India.
