India Major Agriculture Commodities Producer

India Agriculture Commodity Production

India has been quietly growing a strong position in agricultural commodities while China gets the majority of the attention because they're such a strong consumer of most commodities.

While some of the top commodities India produces aren't that used in the western world, other than bananas and lemons, they still are the world leader in the following: safflower, bees wax, goat milk, castorseed, mangoes, guavas and mangosteens, chickpea, pigeon pea, lemons, bananas and buffalo milk, among others.

Unless you think India is only the king of the secondary agricultural commodities in the world, they have held the No. 2 position with major crops like sugarcane, wheat, rice, onions, green peas, cauliflower and garlic. They have been 3rd in cashews, rapeseed, sorghum, linseed and tomatoes.

Although India has a lot more bureaucratic problems than China, and internal challenges they will have to work through, the agricultural production of the country is one of the more positive signs economically for them.

Figures above were primarily based on the production numbers of 2007.
