Wheat output may surpass govt estimate of 112.18 mln tons this year on higher yields: Agri Commissioner

New Delhi,  India’s wheat production may surpass the government’s estimate of record 112.18 million tonnes in the 2022-23 crop year (July-June) on a likely jump in crop yields in major growing states despite inclement weather affecting the grain quality in some parts, Agriculture Commissioner P K Singh said on Thursday.

Weeks before the untimely rains, the government in its second estimate released in February projected wheat output at 112.18 million tonnes for the 2022-23 crop year.

The previous record in wheat production was 109.59 million tonnes in 2020-21 crop year.PTI
