India tops milk output in 2014-15, but lags behind in productivity – Feedback

India has logged a record milk production figure of 146.31 million tonnes in 2014-15 as compared to 137.7 million tonnes a year before.

At current production levels, India continues to top the list of the major milk-producing countries in the world followed by the USA, China, Pakistan and Brazil. Sharing the latest overall milk production data at National Dairy Research Institute (NDRI), Karnal in Haryana on Tuesday, the Union agriculture minister Radha Mohan Singh, however, rued that though India recorded substantial increase in milk production in 2014-15 as compared to 2013-14 (up by nearly 6.3% as compared to global average of 2.2% increase during the year), the milk productivity (production per animal) in the country was far less as compared to those in developed dairy nations.
