and tbe Influence of the weather In causing

ls by far the must Important crop, its acre

where the preponderance of rice is so great as
to make lt reilly the only crop of Importance,

In ih" Punjaub, the Northweal Provinces and
(Mule, and OtbCT BOrtb and centra] SUMes.
.liiar, or gnat millet, was third, with 20*163,070
.-pres, large!) in Madras, where it is the <-iii<-t"
crop, and in Bombay. Crain, ettenna, or chick?
pea is the prlnclpsl pulse crop. Its acreage
ups 13,ri33,034, pretty gem rally distributed
throughout ihe empire. Bajra, or spiked mil
let, bad an acreage of 11337.903, In Ibe same
regions a*- Jusr. Barley had 7,180.426 ?cres,
mostly In the Northwest Provinces and Oude;
maize. 5,065.971 acree, In Coper India. and
ragi, an Inferior millet, 3,685,802 acres, chiefly
In .Madras and Bengal. Then- were also 27.*

pulses; 2,549,391! of orchards and regetsble
?jardens. and 1.980,90*1 ot other food crops.
Generally speaking, all arc divided into
, kharif and rabi crops, ibe former Including rice,
maire and tbe millets, and Ibe latter Including
w heat, barh-y nnd chickpea*, though sumo aro to
be found lu both classes. The acreage of thc for*
' mer is nearly three times gs greal as of the lat
ter. The kharif crop- .-ii" chiefly planted In May
.-uni .lune, ami harvested from September to De
cember, and Hie rabi crops gre planted fruin
September to November and harvested from
Pebraary to April. These nih-* are. of course,
' subject to some variations in various parts of
Hu- empire, bul they generally hold good. Tha
success of tbe crops depends, therefore, bo far
as the weather is concerned, upon thc occur?
rence of light rains ai ibe III.1 plaining thc
kharif, In May and June; of heavy rains from
June to October, when ri.-,, k to be transplant
ed. kharif cereals ripened and ra!; crops plain
ed; sud moderate rains during ihe real of thc
j y.-ar. for the g.i of the rabi crops. The pres
int famine la due to a rather scanty kharif
harvest in tbe fall of 1805, a seamy rabi bar
vest in ibe spring of 1808, and ? very scanty
kharif harvest ii, n?. f;,ii of 1806, As lhere was

rabi harvest ,,f |_e eomlng spring will rarely
be scanty, and full relief cannot possibly rome

Tin- must obvious method "f insuring lbs
