Mild shower is likely to continue in Namakkal and surrounding areas for the next two days, says the weather forecast report from the Agrometeorological Advisory Services. It is likely to be slightly cloudy due to decreasing activity of south west monsoon while the maximum and minimum temperature will be around 33°C and 23°C, respectively.

The weather pattern could be favourable for the layer birds and broilers and is not likely to affect their feed intake, the advisory for the poultry industry says. Poultry farmers are asked to take caution to assess ochratoxin content in sunflower cake before using it as feed. Post mortem observations in birds brought for diagnosis at Avian Disease Laboratory revealed chronic respiratory disease, wing rot and E coli as the problems that resulted in their death.
