Seeing the broad area of cultivation in the current kharif season, the edible oil industry organization Solvent Extractors’ Association of India (SEA) is expecting a buffer production of oilseeds in the 2011-12 crop year (July-June).

In the 2010-11 crop year, the country has registered a bumper production of oilseeds that reached to 31.1 million tones, of which kharif season contributed about 20.84 million tones. As per the report of SEA, the cultivation area of oilseeds has increased to 168.8 lakh hectares in the current kharif season in the country, as compared to 164.5 lakh hectares of 2010-11 crop year.

According to Sushil Goenka, President of Solvent Extractors’ Association of India, the country is witnessing a remarkable increment in the cultivation areas for castor, soyabean and sesame. But at the same time, area for the cultivation of sunflowers and groundnut has come down substantially.
