Wheat cultivation area increases this season
NEW DELHI, DEC 1: Major wheat growing states have reported substantial increase in areas under wheat cultivation in the current season. Accordingly, the Union agriculture ministry after assessing the situation on Thursday, informed the media through a press release that till date countrywide area under wheat cultivation has increased to 101 lakh hectare in the current season as against 79 lakh hectare sown by this time in the previous year.

This area coverage includes an increase of 13 lakh hectare in Madhya Pradesh, 19 lakh hectare increase in Uttar Pradesh and 2 lakh hectare increase in Rajasthan.

The government has fixed the production target for wheat in the current year at 76 million tonne as against an output of 72 million tonne in the previous year.

The release further said that wheat sowing is still in progress and if the rising trend in area coverage continues along with favourable weather conditions, the wheat production in the current year is likely to supercede the target.

Earlier in the middle of the current calender year there were reports of wheat stock in the central pool falling below the revised buffer norms for the period. However, the stocks were enough to meet the needs as demands from the states and the subsequent offtake from the central pool was lower than the quantity stocked. In fact the buffer norms was revised upwards in the current year
