Actual rice production in 2023-24 stood at 123.82 mt (excluding zaid crop), while wheat production for the same period was estimated at a record 112.02 mt. Maize output for 2023-24 (excluding summer crop) was 32.47 mt. Drop in production observed in rice, pulses, and other crops in the current crop year has led to concerns, especially with wheat inventories at their lowest since 2008.
