NEW DELHI: India is set for a bumper harvest as above normal rainfall swept across most of the key crop growing regions in the country.

With 6% more than normal rains, the area under cultivation is 8.56% more than last year during this time. Area under rice has risen 12% while oilseeds area is 14% more than last year.

“The government has surplus food grain production. But we need to grow pulses and oilseeds, for which we are dependent on imports. By bringing more area under oilseeds, we will become self-reliant,” said agriculture commissioner S K Malhotra.

He said that the crops of rice, cotton and coarse cereals are also looking good at this time.

“There is no impact of corona on agriculture. Sowing is in full swing and our exports have also grown. Conditions are conducive for a bumper crop this year,” he said.
