The area under cotton is large in North Maharashtra, Marathwada, Varhad and Vidarbha. Due to damage due to heavy rains, the cotton in Shiwar has been exhausted in two-three pickings. Due to the availability of water, about six lakh hectares of cotton in this region will also come under rabi. So there will be good growth in the field of the rabbi.



Water availability is good throughout the state. An increase in rabi season sowing is seen in an attempt to compensate for the loss in Kharif. As a result of increased irrigation facilities and good rainfall, the area of rabi is likely to increase to 65 lakh hectares this year.
