As per a study, Indian farmers have produced monsoon crops such as rice, cotton, and soybeans on 61.19 million hectares (151 million acres) of farmland as of July 16, down 12 percent from a year ago.

 According to a Bloomberg article citing the Union agricultural ministry, the region of sugarcane has increased about 1.7 percent to 5.37 million hectares so far this year, indicating that the agricultural production for monsoon has seen a drop. Cotton has been seeded on 9.84 million hectares, dropping 13% from a year ago, according to the government later Friday.

The decrease in planting seeds follows a drop in the nation's monsoon rain configuration, which has had a significant influence on the agricultural and agriculture sectors. India is the largest supplier of rice and the largest importer of edible oils in the world. 

A decrease in output might reduce rice exports while simultaneously increasing imports of edible oils including palm oil, sunflower oil, and soyoil. The country's agricultural production, which supports almost all crops, is largely reliant on the monsoon. Irrigation facilities are unavailable to about 60% of India's net-sown area. Rains, particularly monsoon rains, fill more than 100 nationally significant aquifers.

The rainfall also help with the nation's drinking purposes, electricity, and irrigation demands. Millions of farmers in the country rely on the rainfall to cultivate summer crops due to a lack of efficient irrigation systems.
