The spokesman of the Department of Agriculture, Punjab has told the protection of various crops during the rains, the sugarcane, rice and fodder are tolerated by water. So farmers can shift rain water to these fields to avoid damage, while cotton and vegetable crops do not tolerate water. If there is 48 hours of water standing in the cotton crop then crops are incredibly damaged. Therefore, the farmers should arrange for the rainwater harvesting of these crops, so that these crops should be protected from the adverse effects of the rain. Chances of weeds increase during the rain. These weeds not only compete with crop plants in sense of nutrients, but also provide shelters for pest.
