Delay in onset of monsoon and its slow progress have led to late sowing of cotton, but the sowing window is available till early August and its coverage is expected to improve with further progress of monsoon, the government told the Lok Sabha today.


Agriculture Minister Radha Mohan Singh said that the government has taken several measures to address "any situation" arising due to deficiency in rainfall.
