State's grain production up despite drought
Despite drought, Tamil Nadu recorded 73 lakh metric tonnes of food grain production last year. It is more than the average production for 30 years, he said at the inauguration of Uzhavar Kalanjiyam-2017 organised by the VIT University on Friday. Last year, while drought conditions prevailed in 14 States, the country produced 282 million tonnes of food grains. India stood first in the production of 11 agricultural products at the world-level, he said, adding that this was achieved despite less land and less water conditions.
