Indian government have set up a target to achieve an additional 1.5 million tonnes of rabi or winter season Pulses production over last year’s record-shattering 15.89 million tonne crop.

Government policy and a good soil moisture profile are boosting prospects for India’s upcoming rabi crop of Pulses.

Reuters reports that the government hopes to accomplish this goal by encouraging Pulses production on rice fallow in eastern India and by funding various programs to encourage Pulses cultivation in 5,000 villages in northeastern states.

The government recently increased its rabi Pulses minimum support prices by about five percent over last year’s levels. That was below farmer expectations of a 15 percent hike.
