Wheat arrival picks up in Punjab mandis

Punjab's wheat arrival this season is far behind last year's at 15.05 lakh tonnes due to rain, hailstorms and wind damage. The state has so far procured 1.94 lakh tonnes across 1,111 mandis. Arrival is expected to pick up by the end of the week as full-scale harvesting begins. The state government will also own the value cut imposed on damaged wheat crops due to the weather, announced Bhagwant Mann, Punjab's chief minister, via Twitter. The value cut will cost an estimated INR60 crore ($8m) for the 100-120 lakh tonnes of crop expected to reach the mandis.
