The wheat crop in India is in danger due to the heat

India plans to export up to 15 million tonnes of wheat this financial year. Now those plans are in doubt.

An unusually early and intense heat wave in the spring burned wheat fields in India, almost stopping half of their harvests. This was reported by Bloomberg.

Temperatures in India jumped to their highest level recorded since 1901 in March, reducing wheat yield in its critical growth period. In some places the temperature during the day reached +46.5 degrees.

As a result, farmers and local authorities interviewed by journalists estimated a 30-50% reduction in yields.

The publication states that India’s grain may partially compensate for its global shortage due to the war unleashed by Russia against Ukraine. The Minister of Food and Trade estimates that India will export up to 15 million tonnes of wheat this financial year, a record high. This is more than double what it was last year. But now those plans are in question.

It will be recalled that the global market began to experience food shortages due to the war unleashed by the Russian Federation. Famine threatens 81 countries.
