Untimely rains hurt wheat quality rather than yield

The crop quality has been negatively impacted by unseasonal rainfall and hailstorms in major wheat-producing states, but the output is not expected to be reduced, according to experts and dealers. According to S Pramod Kumar, CEO of Sunil Agro, the rains dulled the new crop, but there was no appreciable reduction in output.

He claimed it was too soon to make any comments about the recent arrivals. The wheat collected up until this point has a high moisture content, according to an executive from a significant global company engaged in the wheat trade.

The government’s second advance estimate of 112.1 MT is nearly identical to the output predicted by the ICAR-Indian Institute of Wheat and Barley Research (IIWBR), Karnal, at 112 million tonnes (MT). Gyanendra Singh, director of ICAR-IIWBR, the leading organization for wheat farming in the nation, stated that while there has been some damage, there has also been some benefit as a result of the rains.
