NEW DELHI (Reuters) - Indian farmers are expected to harvest a record 144.52 million tonnes of grains from summer-sown crops in the crop year to June 2021, the government said on Tuesday, against 143.38 million tonnes gathered in the previous year.

In 2020/21, the output of summer-sown rice is estimated at a record 102.36 million tonnes, up from 101.98 million tonnes in 2019/20, the Ministry of Agriculture and Farmers' Welfare said in a statement.

Higher rice output will help India, the world's biggest exporter of the grain, to boost its shipments of the staple.

Production of peanuts is expected at a record 9.54 million tonnes against 8.36 million tonnes produced in the previous year.

Soybean output is seen at 13.58 million tonnes, up from 11.21 million tonnes in the 2019/20 crop year.
