Farmers Heartened by Record Kharif harvest, Recouping Global Food Prices

Agriculture Ministry on September 4 reported Kharif acreage reaching new record of 1,095 lakh hectare. Ministry cited 8.4% above-par monsoon and timely pre-positioning of crops as the major reasons.

Reportedly, the World Food trade subsided due to the lockdowns imposed in most countries to limit the coronavirus spread.
