Reading Time: < 1 minute

(Reuters) -Monsoon rains, vital for farm output in India’s trillion-dollar economy, have hit the country’s southern coast as scheduled, the chief of the weather office said May 31. Good rainfall after last year’s drought would help boost the country’s output of grain and oilseeds. The four-month monsoon season has begun sooner than the usual date of June 1, in line with the weather office’s forecast that it would hit the mainland on May 30. The monsoon rains are vital for the soybean, cane and rice crops in India.
