  1. Forecast if rice area thus Karim us a day dream. In north India, this us the time when farmers secure seeds and ithervunputd to start showing by mid May. Currently, due to Lockown no seed can be transported. If this hurdle is not removed within next 10 days, Rice area will be reduced by 50%. Let the Ministers of Agriculture in centre and states take immediate action to rectify this.
