Thank you very much Sir! You please don't do that much hard work now. I
have made life easy for you. I have formatted the 2nd file "kharif_18_19"
in the same format as it is in the dacnet file. Now, both files I want as
combined where in dacnet file 2018 and 2019 yield data for each crop for
every district and state should appear just below the row of previous years
of data.
