Soybean Plantation Area Declines by 3.76% in 2010 Kharif Season

Soybean plantation during the 2010 kharif season in the country has declined by 3.76% to 93.075 lakh hectares from 96.709 lakh hectares in kharif 2009. Meanwhile, Madhya Pradesh, the largest soybean producing state of India, has reported a growth of 4.17% in area under soybean sowing to 55.193 lakh hectares from 52.985 lakh hectares for the year ago period.

.

During kharif 2010, there was about 9.2%, 7.15%, 6.9%, 2.5% and 2.3% increase in area under soybean plantation in Jabalpur, Gwalior, Bhopal, Indore, Sagar divisions of Madhya Pradesh, respectively as compared to kharif 2009, as per the data released by the Soybean Processors Association of India.

.

One of the major reasons behind year-on-year decline in total area under soybean sowing during kharif 2010 was almost 16% drop in plantation of the oilseed in the state of Maharashtra. The state that stands second in soybean production in the country, bought only 25.529 lakh hectares of land under soybean plantation this year as compared to 30.320 lakh hectares in kharif 2009.

.

Drop in plantation in the state can be attributed to late onset of monsoon. In Vidharbh region major parts of sowing area reduced due to effect of monsoon and good minimum support price (MSP) price of pulse crop.
