The production of major crops in the country, both food and non-food, is expected to decline by about 2.8% in 2012-13, mainly due to lower output of paddy coarse cereals and pulses following irregular rainfall, economic think-tank CMIE has said.
"Production of non-food crops is projected to fall 2.7% in 2012-13. Along with a 2.9% decline in output of food grains, it will lead to a dip in production of major crops by 2.8% in 2012-13," Centre for Monitoring Indian Economy said in its monthly report.
