With the start of October 2022 the monsoon period for the southwest monsoon in India  is over. In average 109% of rainfall were received compared to previous years. For Castor plantings we have seen an increase of > 100.000 hectares compared to last year. More than 880.000 hectare are planted with Castor compared to 740.000 hectare last year.

Plantings in India are still ongoing but should stop in about 2 weeks normally. The majority of the crops is planted.
