Safflower for aberrant weather

Delayed rains

It is more profitable to go for safflower whenever there are late rains in October/November.

Similarly, in several single-cropped rabi areas, the occurrence of prolonged dry weather conditions immediately after plating coupled with insufficient moisture at seedling time result in poor and uneven plant stand and / or near failure of early sown rabi crops. In such case, scrap the early-sown rabi crop and resow with safflower taking advantage of favourable rains in October/early November.
