In May 2022, the government had banned wheat exports to control prices, after a slight fall in the domestic production and a sharp decline in the FCI’s procurement for the central pool. India’s wheat production fell to 106.84 million tonnes in the 2021-22 crop year (July-June) from 109.59 million tonnes in the previous year due to heat waves in a few growing states.  If reports are to be believed, Centre might consider lifting the ban on wheat exports after harvesting of new crop.
