Market analysts are expecting a slight gain for the first quarter, as farmers look to sell their produce in anticipation of an easing of import restrictions.
The latest market data, compiled by market research firm Indias Fresh Market Research, showed that the total market share for farmers rose to 17.5% from 17.3% in June.
The market, however, fell short of expectations of a gain of at least 6%.
This is because many Indian farmers have already sold off some of their produce to buy up some of the available inventory.
The data showed that in June, the total farm market shares rose by 0.5 percentage points to 7.7%.
Indias latest report for June, however indicates that the share of the rural market may rise again.
Indias fresh market is based on data collected in June by the government of India.
The company has a network of more than 70 million farmers across India.
The company is also tracking a series of market trends that could affect farmers.
One of them is the fall in the import of grain, as the government loosens import restrictions for some crops.
India’s wheat prices fell in June as farmers had to wait until the end of June to get grain.
This may be because the government is expected to ease import restrictions on grains by the end the month.
