Price hike across all Grains, Pulses & Flours

According to Mr. Ashok Gulati, Chairman, Commission of Agriculture Costs and Prices told the Economic Times on 21 July, “The situation is alarming. The food grains output is likely to be down by around 15 million tonnes. Dip in pulses production would be a great problem, we will then have to import pulses in huge quantity. Since pulses producing countries are limited, the prices of pulses will go up.

Prices of oilseeds and pulses are firming up in India because globally soft commodity prices are on the rise following the worst drought in 50 years in the US and a heat wave in southern Europe, which will reduce the yield of oil seeds, corn and wheat.

Pulses such as chana and oil seeds – mustard seed, soyabean, cotton seed, and castor seed futures have rallied up between 15-26% on the NCDEX Exchange since their April lows, stoking fear that food inflation may not just be a home grown problem, but a global issue that will affect imports as well.
