Head of the department of agronomy GS Buttar said even the early sown wheat crop in the state had grown up to a considerable level, as the ear-emergence had not taken place, thus the high-speed wind had not affected the crops too much.
"However, as per data, farmers in Ludhiana and other districts have faced lodging of mustard and oats crops due to storm. As flowering has taken place in mustard crop, the bending of stalk has taken place in several parts, thereby affecting the crop," he said.
"The bending of stalk will affect the process of photosynthesis in the plants that will have adverse impact on the plant's health," he expressed.
Meanwhile, head of the department of agriculture meteorology, PAU, KK Gill said wind at an expected speed of 80 km per hours was blowing on Tuesday morning in the region. The department has predicted the same weather conditions inviting more storms and rain on Wednesday morning.
