Wheat Production in India
Cereals play a vital role in fulfilling or satisfying the food demands in a significant part of the world, especially in India. Wheat is an integral part of all Indian kitchens; we can not do without it. Immediately after Independence, India was not in a position to produce its wheat and had to import wheat for domestic consumption. It was only after the 'Green Revolution' that India started producing wheat on a large scale fulfilling all the demands. Currently, India is capable of producing superior varieties of Durum Wheat.
Wheat also plays a significant role in the management of India's food economy. The main varieties of wheat grown in India are:
VL-832,VL-804, HS-365, HS-240 , HD2687,WH-147, WH-542, PBW-343, WH-896(d), PDW-233(d), UP-2338, PBW-502, Shresth (HD 2687), Aditya (HD 2781), HW-2044, HW-1085, NP-200(di), HW-741.
According to the recent 2021-22, India exports wheat varieties to Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, United Arab EMTs, Yemen, Philippines, and Indonesia.
