Indian horticultural crop output to reach record 305.4 million tonnes
Within horticulture, production of vegetables is estimated at 181 million tonnes for 2017-18, about 1% higher than the year before, while that of fruits is estimated at 95 million tonnes, 2% higher than the previous year. Between 2015-16 and 2017-18, productivity of horticultural crops rose from 11.7 tonnes per hectare to an estimated 12.3 tonnes per hectare.
Production estimates for specific crops showed onions at 21.4 million tonnes, about 4.5% lower than the year before, and potatoes at 49.3 million tonnes, marginally higher than the 48.6 million tonnes in 2016-17. Production of tomatoes is estimated to rise 7.7% year-on-year in 2017-18 to 22.3 million tonnes, livemint.com learned.
The record production during 2017-18 will mark the sixth straight year of horticulture production outstripping that of food grains (estimated at 276 million tonnes in 2016-17), suggesting a structural change in Indian agriculture where farmers are increasingly growing perishable commercial crops due to a growing market and a quicker cash flow as these crops require less time from sowing to marketing.
