As per latest release by Agriculture , the sowing of wheat grew by 7%, while the increase in pulses was 11% and in oilseeds it was 6% as compared to last year. As a result, we are expecting 221.4 LMT record production in pulses. Similarly the wheat production is expected to be 965 LMT.

Union Government has framed a policy to transfer the MSP directly to the accounts of farmers in a transparent manner. Government has increased the MSP of pulses and oilseeds considerably and there is steady increase in the MSP of paddy and wheat.

The minister told that during the ongoing Kharif Marketing Season a record 444 LMT of paddy has been procured from the farmers. The minister said that farmers have produced record pulses, however, there were complaints that they were not getting even then MSP for Moong and Arhar.

The Government immediately responded, first, by increasing the buffer stock of pulses from 1.5 MT to 20 LMT in order to protect farmers’ interests. Further the Government has engaged 3 central agencies viz. FCI, NAFED and SFAC to procure pulses directly from farmers which is still going on.
