'India's wheat prod can be raised by 2015'
PRESS TRUST OF INDIA
New Delhi, Dec 19: Noted farm scientists, including the architect of India's Green Revolution, have indicated that wheat production in the country can be ramped up to 100 million tonnes by 2015 through better soil and water management in the largely untapped Indo-Gangetic Plains.
Agriculture experts from across the country, including M S Swaminathan -- who is credited with helping the country ramp up wheat output through the introduction of hybrid crop varieties -- noted that the wheat-growing potential has almost reached the saturation point in the states of Punjab, Haryana and Rajasthan in the north-western plains.
