Rice Production in India


India is popular for its rice cultivation all over the world. As per a statistical report, rice production in India coves around 46% of the total food crop production and 20% of world rice production. Rice (HS Code 1006) is India’s pre-eminent crop and staple food of the people living in southern and eastern parts of the country. The production of rice in India is estimated to be about 105 million tons in a year. Being a tropical plant, rice flourishes with ease in hot and humid Indian climate, especially in the areas receiving heavy rainfall. This crop demands more than 100cm rainfall and average temperature of 25 degree Celsius. West Bengal tops the list of top rice producing states of India, followed by Uttar Pradesh, Punjab, Odisha, Andhra Pradesh, Bihar, Chhattisgarh, Tamil Nadu, Assam, Telangana, Haryana and Madhya Pradesh. So, India is among the top rice exporting countries in the world.


According to All India Rice Exporters Association (AIREA), more than 90% of world rice is grown and consumes in Asia. It is the apex body for Indian rice exporters around the globe. Since 2016, India’s exports of rice have been rising substantially and it is likely to rise further because of two major reasons. One, Indian rice exports to Bangladesh is likely to jump as rice crop has been damaged after flooding into the country. Second reason is that Iran has resumed basmati rice imports from India as the country restarted rice import registration this year from Jan 21 till Jun 21. Every year, Iran bans rice imports during the rice harvest season (July-January) in support of local farmers and domestic production.
