Abstract

In India, oilseeds have been in chronic short supply for well over two decades amid a demand surge for edible oil driven by rising incomes, demographic pressure, and low per capita availability. Land constraints, water stress, and climate change are sure to hurt Indian agriculture in general and oilseeds cultivation in particular, as these crops are grown predominantlyasrainfed crops. That makes comprehensive policyaction inevitable. In thisreview, recommendations and strategies to boost domestic oilseed production are discussed.
