Hubballi: A three-month-long cloud seeding project to stimulate artificial rainfall in the North Karnataka region was launched at the Hubballi International Airport on Friday.

“The three-month-long cloud seeding project will aim at catering rainfall in the North Karnataka region,” M Deepa, Deputy Commissioner, was quoted speaking to ANI.

“Monsoon in the state has been delayed by a month. We have 20 per cent shortage in the rainfall even after July saw sufficient rains. Navalgund and Kundgol taluks in Dharwad district have also received poor rainfall,” she added.

Cloud seeding is a type of weather modification that aims to change the amount or type of precipitation that falls from clouds by dispersing substances into the air that serve as cloud condensation or ice nuclei, which alter the microphysical processes within the cloud.
