India Hopeful of 23 MMT Rice Harvest
Government officials in India are hopeful this year's rice harvest will reach 23 million metric tons (MT), including paddy equivalent, despite late sowing and excessive rain in six States. The Minister of Agriculture and Food and Civil Supplies, Shri Sharad Pawar, said farmers have made good progress seeding crops the past 10 days. "Hence, probably the earlier anticipated shortfall of 8 million MT of paddy production would be tided over," Shri Pawar said. The Minister of State for Food and Public Distribution, Dr. Akhilesh Prasad Singh also impressed upon Food Secretaries to ensure effective MSP (Minimum Support Price) operations for the benefit of farmers especially in the non-traditional States. During the kharif marketing season 2004-05 ending on September 30, 2005, the total estimated procurement is likely to reach a record high of 24.2 million MT. Coarse grains procurement is also likely to be over 1 million MT in the coming season. The Minister emphasized the need to popularize coarse grains under the Public Distribution System.
