Imagine staying a few minutes in the sun in this hot scorching summer.
Crops stay in this dessicating heat all day and no amount of water supply to the plants prevents them from being impacted. With summer coming in as early as late February this year, the impacts have already affected crop stands. Tomato & capsicum fruits are blanched while plants have been drying out, watermelon fruits in an entire plot have burst open while still unripe, beans plants have wilted and dried, gourd plants have dried up to turn to dust on touch, papaya plants stay wilted all day awaiting the night to recoup.
If you wondering why our organic fruit and vegetables are limited in variety and quantity, you know why. Let's now await an early monsoon!
