NEW DELHI (Commodity Online): Due to poor rains in the jute growing states India'sc is expected to decline by 12% to 90 lakh bales in the 2012-13 crop year .
The country had produced 102 lakh bales of jute last year. One bale of jute is equal to 332.5 kg.
The drought-like situation in some states of India and floods in India's Assam could impact crop condition.
Area sown under jute is lower at 8.40 lakh hectare so far in the ongoing Kharif season, against 8.92 lakh hectare in the year-ago period as per the Indian Agriculture Ministry data.
Sowing of most kharif crops, both food and cash crops, are lagging behind due to poor rains in the country. Monsoon rains were deficient by 20 percent till July.
Jute is normally cultivated as an inter-crop between the two main agricultural seasons, kharif and rabi. About 5-6% of the total production is used for making 1.6 million tonnes of jute goods every year. Farmers use the remaining fibre for manure and fuel.
