Share & Comment
"According to initial reports received from various states after unseasonal rains... the estimates show wheat production could drop by 4-5 percent this year," Singh added while addressing a conference on kharif crops here.

The Agriculture Ministry, in its second advanced estimate, has projected wheat production to drop slightly to 95.76 million tonnes in 2014-15 crop year (July-June) from 95.85 million tonnes in the previous year.

Unseasonal rains and hailstorms have damaged rabi (winter-sown) crops in about 113 lakh hectares of crop area in the country. Total cultivable area in rabi season stands at 600 lakh hectares, the Minister informed.

Singh added that states have adequate funds under State Disaster Response Fund (SDRF) to provide financial assistance to farmers affected by the unseasonal rains.
