NEW DELHI, Jan 21 (Commoditiescontrol) - Total area sown with the ongoing Rabi season crops rose 1.10 percent to 679.34 lakh hectare so far, driven by higher acreage in case of oilseeds.

Sowing of Rabi season crops starts from October. In the year-ago period, the acreage stood at 671.98 lakh hectare.

Wheat is the main winter or rabi crop. Pulses, such as gram, urad, moong as well as oilseeds like rapeseed & mustard, groundnut and sunflower, are other rabi crops grown in this season.
