Scanty Rains Hit Crops

agriScanty rains this year are likely to hit the production of all crops. The production will be only half of the target. According to the Department of Economic Statistics (DES) which provides crop estimates four times a year, said in its second estimate that though the crop production was estimated to touch one crore tons it will be only 50 lakh tons. Last year the crop production was 68 lakh tons. Though the targeted production of jowar was 34 lakh tons, the actual production will be 16 lakh tons only. The production of pulses and oil seeds also may decrease to half. If the third and fourth estimates by the DES will continue to be discouraging, the state may face crisis of food grains.
