NEW DELHI (Commoditiescontrol) - India's crop production in the Kharif season (summer-sown) will be higher than last year's 141.71 million tonnes on better monsoon rains, Minister of State for Agriculture Parshottam Rupala said on Friday.

The minister said kharif crops were affected in some states because of floods but it would not have much impact on the overall production.

"The condition of kharif crop is good. In some places, there is crop damage because of excessive rains. Still, we will have bumper production in kharif season, higher than last year," Rupala told reporters here on the sidelines of National Conference on Agriculture -- Rabi Campaign.

As many as 12 states have been affected by floods.

However, he said: "The plant growth is good because of rains on regular intervals."

The official said the prospects of rabi sowing looks bright because of better soil moisture on account of good monsoon now and reservoirs are also full.

He also noted that rabi crops are mostly grown in irrigated area. Acreage of maize and mustard seed is expected to be higher in the rabi season.
