India expects wheat production of 75 mn tonnes
India expects a marginally higher wheat production of around 75 million tonnes from the winter crop to be harvested in April, against the 72 million tonnes of last year. "Wheat production for the ensuing Rabi (winter) crop is likely to be around 75 million tonnes provided weather conditions remained favourable," the agriculture ministry said in a statement Tuesday. Last year, due to warm weather in March and hailstorms during the wheat-ripening season, around four million tonnes of the crop was damaged. If the weather remains favourable, government is optimistic of having a good rabi crop of not just wheat, the main crop, but other coarse grains as well. The government plans to procure around 18 million tonnes of wheat for the public distribution system and buffer stocks in the 2005-06 Rabi marketing season. The decision was taken a meeting held here by the Department of Food and Public Distribution with food secretaries of the main procuring states - Punjab and Haryana - to discuss procurement of wheat and coarse grains. During Rabi Marketing Season 2004-05, the government bought 16.8 million tonnes of wheat from farmers for buffer stocks and the public distribution system. According to preliminary estimates, Punjab is expected to contribute the maximum to the central pool with 10 million tonnes followed by Haryana with 5.5 million tonnes. Procurement in Punjab and Haryana will start on April 1. The minimum support price for wheat fixed by the government for Rabi Marketing Season 2005-06 is Rs.640 per quintal.
