Indian Wheat harvesting in Punjab, Haryana may get delayed due to untimely rains

The current spell of untimely rains along with strong winds are "very harmful" for wheat crop as it could not affect the yield adversely, besides delaying harvesting in Punjab and Haryana for a few days, say experts. 

Punjab and Haryana expect wheat procurement of about 125 lakh tonnes and 65 lakh tonnes, respectively, during the coming Rabi marketing season, starting next month.
Punjab has projected wheat output of 168 lakh tonnes for the current season. Haryana is expecting wheat production of 113.9 lakh tonnes as against last season's production of 118 lakh tonnes.

Wheat output may surpass last year's record 95.85 million tonnes: Agriculture Ministry of India

The country’s wheat production this year is likely to surpass the previous record of 95.85 million tonnes achieved in 2013-14, notwithstanding some crop damage in few places due to recent unseasonal rains, a top agriculture ministry official said on Tuesday. India, the world’s second-biggest wheat grower, could set a fresh record if the current low temperature continues and there are no rains in the current month, agriculture secretary Siraj Hussain told reporters on the sidelines of “Pusa Krishi Vigyan Mela”. In its second estimate, the ministry had last month pegged wheat output slightly lower at 95.76 million tonnes for the ongoing 2014-15 crop year (July-June). “Damage to wheat crop is limited to few areas only. The current low temperature will further boost productivity. I believe wheat production this year would be a record. My own assessment is that wheat production this year is going to be very good, may be more than last year,” he said. There were reports of damage in some areas but the crop prospects are good. “The crop yields are expected to improve if the current low temperature continues and there are no rains in the current month,” Hussain said. “Wheat crops, which have fallen flat on ground due to heavy rains and winds in some areas, could recover if the current weather continues,” he added. Echoing views, Indian Agricultural Research Institute (IARI) joint director research D.V. Prabhu said, “The recent rains have rather been beneficial to wheat crop. We expect wheat production to be a record 97-98 million tonnes. Total production could even touch 100 million tonnes if good weather prevails till harvesting,” he added. Standing crops in over 50 lakh hectares in Uttar Pradesh, Maharashtra, Punjab, Rajasthan and West Bengal have been damaged by the recent unseasonal rains, according to the government’s data placed before Parliament.
