India's heavy early monsoon rains have raised hopes of bumper oilseeds and rice crops, which would boost supplies and help tame inflation now ruling at its highest in seven years, traders and analysts said. A good monsoon helps improve soil moisture, lowers irrigation costs, recharges groundwater and encourages farmers to sow early, all factors which point to increased food output. REUTERS/K.K.
