NEW DELHI (Reuters) – Indian farmers have planted on 15.3 million hectares since Oct. 1, when the current season began, up nearly 11% from a year ago, the government data showed on Friday, as record high prices have encouraged planting.


Farmers have also increased acreage under rapeseed, the key winter-sown oilseed, to 7.1 million hectares as of Nov. 25, up from last year’s 6.2 million hectares, the Ministry of Agriculture & Farmers’ Welfare said in its weekly update of data.
