 Hide Ans

Solution:
Option(A) is correct

The oilseeds production scenario in India has witnessed a dramatic turn. The country achieved a status of self sufficient and net exporter’ during early nineties, rising from the ‘net importer’ state, with a mere annual production of nearly 11 million tonnes from the annual oilseed crops, until the year 1986-87.

In a span of just a decade, an all time record oilseeds production of 25 million tonnes from annual oilseed crops was attained during 1996-97. This transformation has been termed as ``The Yellow Revolution’’.
