India forecast to harvest record rice crop | MED-Amin network | Scoop.it

World Grain, 13/03/2019 – Despite a weak monsoon season, India’s Ministry of Agriculture and Farmer Welfare is forecasting record production of rice and near record production of wheat in 2018-19. However, it predicts significantly lower output of corn and other coarse grains, which means overall grain production is expected to fall 2 million tonnes short of last year’s record crop. India’s rice production is forecast to reach 115.6 million tonnes, while wheat output has been revised higher to 99.1 million tonnes. According to the Indian . . .

India's 2019 wheat output could fall from record on scanty rains

India's 2019 wheat output could fall from record on scanty rains | MED-Amin network | Scoop.it

By Times Now News, 02/12/2018

Local wheat prices have risen more than 15 per cent in the last five months on the low rainfall levels and as depreciation in the rupee made imports more expensive.

India's wheat production could fall in 2019 from record output this year as lower moisture levels and higher temperatures in key growing regions are threatening yields of the winter-sown crop, farmers and analysts told Reuters. A drop in output could lift local wheat prices and force the world's second-biggest producer to reduce import taxes on the grain to augment supply. Higher imports from India could support global wheat prices, while a local price increase could calm angry farmers in northern India.

Spot maize prices have risen 7.6% over the past fortnight, driving end-users including poultry and livestock feed manufacturers to panic stocking.

Feed manufacturers are heading towards Chindwada in Madhya Pradesh, the only place in the country where maize availability is currently comfortable.

“We normally buy maize from Karnataka and Maharashtra. However, this year, even during the peak season, availability at these two places was not enough and neither was it of good quality,” said Latur-based Vijay Jadhav, a poultry feed manufacturer who purchased his requirements from Madhya Pradesh.

Spot maize prices for Sangli delivery increased to Rs 1,647/quintal on the National Commodity & Derivatives Exchange on Monday from Rs 1,531/quintal on November 12.

With the shortage developing during the crop’s peak arrival season, the feed industry is in panic mode.

Maize is the third most important cereal crop in India, after rice and wheat, and accounts for about 10% of the country’s food grain production. More than half the maize produced locally is consumed as poultry feed, while the rest goes as food for humans, animal feed and industrial processing.
