Indian Grain production hit a new record despite decline in wheat production

Tags: Economy/Finance

The Union Agriculture Ministry released its fourth advance estimate of food grain production for 2021-22 crop year (July-June) on 17 August 2022.

The estimated wheat production have dropped almost 3% to 106.84 million tonnes (MT) although overall foodgrains output is expected to have hit a record 315.72 million tonnes, aided by a record rice harvest.

Reason for decline in wheat production 

The drop in wheat output is attributed to the heatwave between March and June that hit the crop in the northern states of Punjab and Haryana.

The heat wave led to the drop in the yield of wheat.

This was the reason why the government had to ban the export of wheat in May to keep local prices down.

Record Rice production estimated 

Total production of Rice during 2021-22 is estimated at a record 130.29 million tonnes, which is 5% higher than the previous year.

Rice production could decline in 2022-23 season 

However the rice production in the next crop year (2022-23) could decline by around 10 MT because of more than 12% fall in paddy acreage in the current Kharif sowing season so far because of deficiency in monsoon rainfall in key growing states of West Bengal, Bihar, Jharkhand and Uttar Pradesh.
