Pune The Ministry of Earth Sciences has requested the state government to part with 17 gunthas of land in Mahabaleshwar for its cloud-seeding project, for which it had got a green signal early in the year.

The government has been seriously contemplating taking up cloud seeding along the State

The State Government has decided to go the Chinese way to deal with the erratic monsoon rains: It will test rocket launching system of cloud seeding to ensure rainfall and avoid agriculture drought.

July 15: The agriculture minister, Mr N. Raghuveera Reddy, on Thursday said that the scientific data available with the government had proved that the cloud seeding operations yielded positive results.

As the country saw drought-like situation in most regions and recorded 22 per cent less than normal rainfall last year, city-based Indian Institute of Tropical Meteorology (IITM) under the India Meteorological Department has charted out its cloud seeding programme for the rain shadow regions in Maharashtra, Andhra Pradesh and Karnataka for this year.
