Oilseeds are an indispensable crop in India since it contributes substantially to agriculture in terms of farm income, employment and export earnings. It has been observed that there are fluctuations in the area under various oilseed crops in India. It was seen that two oilseed crops namely castor and sunflower had a high retention capability and rapeseed and mustard had a relatively stable retention capability in all the analyzed states. The low retention probability for few oilseeds may be due to tough competition presented and greater market diffusion efforts made by other oilseeds. Further, it was concluded that India should not have high reliance on one oilseed so as to evade trade risks in the long run. Therefore, suitable policies need to be envisioned to diversify the geographical concentration of oilseed production and minimize market risks.
