Approximately 80% of India’s M. arvensis crop is grown in the state of Uttar Pradesh, 10% in the state of Bihar and the remaining 10% in Punjab and Madhya Pradesh. The harvesting of M. arvensis will commence in June 2018. This year’s cropis good, but oil quantity is subject to the amount of rain at the time of harvest.
2018 could see a strain on supplies. Zero carryover stock from last year has pushed up prices. The slowdown in natural mint and the advent of synthetic alternatives has resulted in a significant decrease ingrowing areas.
