India, the world’s second-largest wheat consumer, has imported more than 5 million tons of wheat since June last year, after two continuous years of production coming down due to droughts and unseasonal rains ahead of harvest. India is also the world’s second-biggest wheat producer. The domestic wheat harvest is expected to peak in April, likely limiting purchases in the following months.
