India expecting another wheat bumper crop.
Apr 08, 2021

For the fifth year in a row India is forecast to produce another wheat bumper crop in the 2021-22 marketing year based on favorable weather, according to a Global Agricultural Information Network (GAIN) report from the US Department of Agriculture (USDA).
The country is projected to produce 107 million tonnes, a near-record, in the 2020-21 marketing year, just shy of last year’s 107.9-million-tonne wheat harvest.
The USDA anticipates India’s wheat consumption for the 2021-22 marketing year to be 97 million tonnes, up slightly from 96.6 million tonnes in the previous marketing year. India’s import and export activities are erratic and based on domestic production of the commodity. The USDA expects high domestic wheat production will compensate the need for imports in the 2021-22 marketing year.
