Oil Seed crops are second most determinant category of crops for our agricultural economy, post cereals. The self-sufficiency in oilseeds attained through “Yellow Revolution” during early 1990’s, could not be sustained beyond a short period. Oilseed production is quite concentrated in some states in India. Madhya Pradesh accounts for 27% of the production and top 4 states account for ~80% of the production. Palm oil forms a major share of the edible oil consumed by Indians, with second most consumed oil being Soyabean Oil. Together both sum up to ~65 % to 75 % of our consumption.
