     The National Mission on Oilseed and Oil Palm (NMOOP) is a new programme launched during 2014-15 by Government of India with an aim to boost the production of oilseeds in the country.

The Programme (NMOOP) consists of three Mini Missions out of which the two undermentioned is implemented in the State:

1. Mini Mission I (Oilseeds)

2. Mini Mission II (Oil Palm)

1. Mini Mission -I (Oilseeds)

      The diverse agro-ecological conditions in the State are favorable for growing 7 annual oilseed crops, which include 6 edible oilseeds ( groundnut, rapeseed & mustard, soybean, sunflower, sesame) and one non-edible oilseeds ( linseed ). Oilseed cultivation is undertaken across the State in about 67.52 thousand hectares mainly on marginal lands, which is mainly confined to rainfed farming.

During the last few years, the domestic consumption of edible oils has increased substantially and is likely to increase further, with per capita consumption of vegetable oils at the rate of 16 kg/year/person .

2. Mini Mission II (Oil Palm)

      A substantial portion of our requirement of edible oil in the country is met through import of palm oil from Indonesia and Malaysia. It is, therefore, necessary to exploit domestic resources to maximize production to ensure edible oil security for the country.

Oil palm is comparatively a new crop in India and is the highest vegetable oil yielding perennial crop. With quality planting materials, irrigation and proper management, there is potential of achieving 20-30 MT of Fresh Fruit Bunches (FFBs) per ha. after attaining the age of 5 years. Therefore, there is an urgent need to intensify efforts for area expansion under oil palm to enhance palm oil production in the country. 1200 ha. is being targeted to covered during the current financial year in the State.
