This years wheat harvest is expected to be more bountiful than last year, India's Agriculture Ministry said recently. India which is the second largest producer of wheat in the world is expected to produce about 93.6 million metric tons. Some reports estimate that this will mean a decrease in the local price of wheat and a boost in exports due to the large surplus of grain stored.
