NEW DELHI, INDIA — India has gathered a panel of officials to review the impact of rising temperatures on its wheat crop, after a recent increase raised concerns about crop yields, Reuters reported, citing government officials.

India is expected to produce a record 112.2 million tonnes of wheat, an increase of 4.1%. But a lack of winter rains has increased temperatures in some parts of India where farmers grow wheat.

In mid-February, the daily average temperature reached early to mid-March levels, according to weather officials.

India’s agriculture commissioner will head the committee, and officials from the country’s key wheat growing states and government scientists also will be on the panel, Reuters said.
