The Agriculture Ministry set a target for foodgrain production of 285.2 millions tonnes in 2018-19. This is a slight increase over the harvest of 284.8million tonnes from last year. The increase in food production over the past year is due to an increased harvest of rice. It went from 109.7 to 111.5 millions tonnes in 2017-18.
