Record Wheat Crop Helps India Meet Global Demand

This is the sixth season the country has produced a surplus

Bumper harvests and overflowing grain bins will help India to meet wheat import needs of the world's top buyers as Russia's Ukraine invasion hits supplies from the Black Sea region, a top government official told Reuters.

India, the world's second biggest wheat producer, is prepared to meet any extra demand for wheat from buyers in south Asia and Southeast Asia, and also from countries further afield in Europe, West Asia and North Africa.

India's new season wheat harvest is underway, with this year's production pegged at a record 111.32 million tonnes - making it the sixth season in a row that the country has produced a surplus.

Wheat stocks at government warehouses totalled 19 million tonnes on April 1, significantly higher than a target of 7.46 million tonnes.
