The study area is mainly for deltaic and plain area and especially the district is ‘Rice bowl of Tamil Nadu’. The area is mainly for monsoon area. The monsoon is very very important in this area. So the suitable for the climate and the agricultural activities are well developed in this area. There are two types of monsoon is available in this area. Mainly for North East monsoon and South West monsoon area. North East monsoon is mostly affected in this area mainly for the month of November and December.
