Places like Hoshangabad, Seoni , Jabalpur, Betul and Khandwa will receive good showers for at least next 2 days. Bhopal and Indore will also receive scattered good rains.
The upcoming spell of rainfall in the state are not good for the Kharif crops as most of the crops are nearing the harvest season. During this time of the year, light rains are ok but heavy rains could have adverse impact on the crops, especially soybean. Normally, this oilseed possesses 30 to 40% oil content. Any heavy spell of rain could reduce it to about 20%. The quality of the seeds will also deteriorate significantly.
