Dr Raghurami said that farmers have time till July 20 if they want to cultivate cotton.But farmers must sow seeds only after 50 to 56 per cent rains are recorded in light soils and 60 to 75 per cent in hard soils. He said that red gram can be a good intercrop with cotton.

He said that farmers can sow soybeans till the end of June and the first week of July and maize can be sown till July 15. He suggested farmers must follow the Bodhe and Saalla system to ensure wetness for the crop.

He said that Green Gram and Black Gram can be sowed till July 15 and that farmers can harvest huge quantities of grain if they follow directions during sowing. caster, sunflower and horse gram can be sowed till July 31, Dr Raghurami added.
