Wheat Prices: Boil in wheat prices! Stock left in government godowns is lowest in 6 years

Wheat Price Hike: The bread on your plate is going to be more expensive. A huge increase is being seen in the prices of wheat. Due to the increase in demand and decrease in inventory, a jump in the prices of wheat is being seen. At the same time, the stock of wheat in the godowns of the government has come down to the lowest level in 6 years. In such a situation, it is believed that till the arrival of the new crop in the market, the prices of wheat may continue to rise further.

Wheat stock at 6 year low

On December 1, 2021, there was 37.85 million tonnes of wheat stock in the government godowns, which has come down to 19 million tonnes. Earlier, due to drought in 2014 and 2015, the stock of wheat in 2016 was 16 million tonnes. However, there is time for the new wheat crop to enter the market. In such a situation, controlling wheat prices can prove to be a big challenge for the government. So it is not going to be easy for the government to take a decision to sell wheat in the market to rein in the prices due to shortage of stock in the godowns of the government.

Wheat crop has been sown in 25.6 million hectares this season, which is 25.4 percent more than last year. But the new crop is expected to hit the market only after April 2023.
