Advance estimate of agricultural production for 2011-12

The fourth advance estimate of agricultural production for 2011-12 shows that the foodgrains production touched a new peak of 257 million tonnes over the previous year's peak of 245 million tonnes. This has been enabled by the production of both rice and wheat reaching all-time highs of 104 million tonnes and 94 million tonnes respectively, though the performance of other cereals and pulses remained mixed. Among commercial crops, while oilseeds production declined by 7.6% to 300 million tonnes, production of sugar cane reached a new peak of 3,577 million tonnes.
