India is the second largest producer of rice in the entire world, right behind China. India produces 120.6 million tons of rice every single year, while China brings in a whopping 197.2 million tons. However, India could be producing an additional 100 million tons every year, enough to feed 400 million people. The techniques that India is using to produce rice are outdated, and they are beginning to fall behind on the global scale of rice production.
India is only 45% as productive as China is, and 60% as productive as Indonesia, a country who only produces 60 million tons of rice annually. If India were to adopt the techniques of Indonesia and China, farmers could be making US$50 billion! That’s insane! Learn more about this in the source
