India facing higher monsoon rains than forecast - IMD chief

India looks likely to receive higher monsoon rainfall than previously forecast as concern over the El Nino weather condition has eased, the chief of the India Meteorological Department (IMD) said on Tuesday, raising prospects of higher farm and economic growth. The IMD on April 18 forecast this year's monsoon rains at 96 percent of the 50-year average of 89 cm. "Things have changed for the good since then," K.J. Ramesh, director general of the IMD, told Reuters in an interview. The monsoon delivers about 70 percent of India's annual rainfall, critical for growing crops such as rice, cane, corn, cotton and soybeans because nearly half of the country's farmland lacks irrigation.
