The Hindustan Times (September 8, 2014) | The incessant and heavy rain on Thursday and Friday, which is quite untimely and unwanted for the standing crops in the Malwa belt, for crops including early-maturing varieties of paddy and cotton, is supposed to again hit the farmers hard like the last year when heavy rain lashed the region and destroyed cotton in large parts and led to very low yield.
