Rabi sowing at a record 685 lakh hectares

Rabi sowing scaled new heights with farmers planting winter crops of more than practically 685 lakh hectares (lha), that is about three for every cent more than 666 lha protected in the exact 7 days previous calendar year, according to knowledge unveiled by the Agriculture Ministry on Friday.

All-time highs
