The Met Office has asked the farmers to make plans to protect standing crops and nurseries from cold weather impacts, saying the irrigation plans should be in place as dry weather is expected in the next 10 days.

It said that the growers should schedule their irrigation plans for the Rabi crop during the next 10 days keeping in view the dry weather spell. It also asked them to remove weeds from their standing crops to help attain a maximum yield.

In the next 10 days: Mainly a cold and dry weather is expected in Punjab Sindh, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Balochistan, Gilgit-Baltistan and Kashmir with an isolated rain-thunderstorm in Kohat, Bannu and Dera Ismail Khan Division, besides parts of Kashmir on March 23. The isolated falls may also hit Quetta, Zhob, Kalat and Makran Divisions.

“Continental air is prevailing over most parts of the country. However, a shallow westerly wave is affecting north-eastern parts of Balochistan and its adjoining areas and may persist during next 24 to 48 hours,” the Met said.
