Explanation:

A sharp decline in oilseed production is bound to reduce oil supply and import of oil is the only means to restore the essential supply.

 Suraj said: (Jan 5, 2016) May be its possible that due to bad weather condition or natural calamities production of oil seeds have been reduced there fore because of this we need to import them.

 Maria said: (Jan 12, 2016) Agreed with @Suraj; also, the government raising the import quota may have affected oil seed production due to increased competition in the market and potential lower prices, leading to farmers focusing their efforts on something else so as not to have an excess inventory of seeds that they cannot sell.

 Ag.Deva Madhaiyan said: (Sep 11, 2016) I. There is a sharp decline in the production of oilseeds this year. II. The Government has decided to increase the import quantum of edible oil. Here in this, the 1 st statement mention as an OIL SEED. , in this 2nd Statement mention as EDIBLE OIL. There is a lot of difference between oilseed and edible oils, all oils from the seeds are not edible.
