According to a recent report of the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), India's oilseed production increased in the year ending September 2009 that may result in the decrease in import rate of edible oils. One of the other important point of this report is the prediction that India's total oil seeds production is around 36 million tonnes, which is more than 6 percent as compared to the year ending September 2008. This has been possible to the enhancement in the production of soybean and peanuts.
