The Ministry of Earth Sciences (MoES) said India is likely to see normal monsoons in 2020 raising expectations of higher farm output in Asia’s third-biggest economy.
“This year we will have a normal monsoon. Quantitatively the monsoon rainfall, during the monsoon season 2020, is expected to be 100% of its long period average with an error of +5 or -5% due to model error,” said Madhavan Rajeevan, Secretary, MoES.
The state-run weather agency IMD defines average, or normal, rainfall as between 96%and 104% of a 50-year average of 88 centimetres for the entire four-month season beginning June. Dailyhunt
