NEWS HIGHLIGHTS
Farm sector growth estimate raised to 4.8% this fiscal
The Prime Ministers Economic Advisory Council (PMEAC) has estimated farm sector growth for current fiscal at 4.8 per cent, more than twice last years 1.9 per cent, on excess rains boosting prospects of a bumper kharif harvest. The monsoon has been very good and the kharif planting has been extraordinarily good. With good rains and reservoir position, the rabi harvest should be strong, it said. As on September 13, the kharif acreage stood at 1,033.63 lakh hectares (ha), about five per cent more than last year. Rice was planted in 371.75 lakh ha (360.92 lakh ha in corresponding last year), pulses in 103.76 lakh ha (98.25 lakh ha) and coarse cereals in 195.02 lakh ha (175.83 lakh ha). Total oilseed acreage stood at 195.02 lakh ha (170.97 lakh ha). The Council said 2013-14 is likely to see higher output in rice and wheat, and significant gains in coarse cereals and pulses. The output of pulses may be en route to crossing 20 million tonnes (mt) the highest output level ever recorded, and nearly double the production level of a decade ago. Thus, output of foodgrain can be expected to hit a new record this year, it said. (Source:

FMC asks MCX, NCDEX to probe guar futures price movement


Commodities market regulator FMC has asked MCX and NCDEX to probe the volatility in guar futures prices and submit a report withing 15 days. Prices of guar seed and guar gum for October delivery at the countrys two largest commodity bourses - MCX and NCDEX - have risen up to 85 per cent in the last one month. At NCDEX, prices of guar seed for October delivery has increased by 85 per cent to Rs 7,720 per quintal on September 13 as compared with Rs 4,170 per quintal on August 13. Prices of guar gum for October delivery rose by 81 per cent to Rs 21,490 per quintal on September 13 from Rs 11,860 per quintal on the same day in the previous month. A similar trend was seen in prices of guar seed and guar gum on the MCX platform as well. FMC had allowed resumption of guar futures trade in May this year. In a directive, the Forward Markets Commission (FMC) said: After the re-launch of the guar gum and guar seed contracts, it has been observed that there is high price volatility in recent times.

Vegetable oil imports fall 15.5% in August


Vegetable oil imports fell by 15.52% during the last month to 7.57 lakh tonnes due to volatility in the rupee's value, according to the trade data released Friday. Imports of vegetable oils, comprising edible oil and nonedible oils, stood at 8.97 lakh tonnes in the same month last year. "Import during August decreased due to rupee volatility," Solvent Extractors' Association said in a statement. However, the total import of vegetable oils during November 2012-August 2013 increased by 8% to 87,92,383 tonnes compared to 81,62,545 tonnes in the year-ago period. The oil year runs from November to October. "The rupee has suddenly fallen in the last few days and touched R68.36 a dollar on August 28, 2013 and now rested at R63.59 (September 12), putting pressure on import of vegetable oils," SEA said. The association also noted that during the last one year, RBD Palmolein has fallen by $195 (19%), CPO by $171 (17%), crude soybean oil by $326 (26%) and crude sunflower oil by $202 (16%). Total stock, both at ports and pipelines, is estimated at 16,85,000 tonnes compared to 19,90,000 tonnes in the previous month. (Source:

Record crop likely in coarse cereals


Currenty, maize (corn) for delivery to exporters in November is quoted at $220 or Rs 13,950 a tonne f.o.b. If this is worked backwards, then its price could be lower than the minimum support price of Rs 1,310 a quintal fixed for this year. In turn, it could leave the Government, which is headed for elections in six months time, in a fix to ensure that growers get at least the support price. Excess and even spread of rainfall during the current monsoon could have brought smiles to the faces of farmers. But in the case of coarse cereals, it is also bringing in an additional problem on the prospect of a higher, if not a record, production. Rains have been good in areas where coarse cereals are grown, says Amit Sachdev, a consultant for the industry on cereals. There are some reports of damage in a few places but I dont see that affecting the final outcome, said Sachdev. (Source: Business Line)

Onion price likely to go up again


There seems to be no immediate respite to consumers from high onion prices. After easing marginally in the past couple of weeks, onion prices are on the rise again. Heavy rainfall in the South has affected the ongoing harvest in States such as Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh, resulting in lower market arrivals and prices soaring in consuming centres. In Delhi, the average wholesale price, which stood at Rs 3,700 a quintal in early September, rose to over Rs 4,432 on Friday, an increase of 20 per cent in the past two weeks. In Lasalgaon, the countrys largest onion market, the average wholesale price ruled higher than the Delhi market at Rs 4,550 a quintal on Friday. At the retail level, the prices in Delhi, which hovered around Rs 55 a kg last week, have now crossed Rs 60.Trade sources expect prices to remain firm or increase in the near term until supplies from Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh improve or the main crop from Nashik arrives in early October.

Govt likely to raise import duty on refined edible oil to 10%


The government is expected to raise import duty on refined edible oil to 10%, from 7.5% at present, to protect the domestic oil refining industry. A Cabinet note regarding this has already been circulated by the Food Ministry, sources said. The move is aimed at protecting domestic players who are into refined edible oil business, they added. Currently, the cost of imported refined edible oil is lower than that of crude edible oil due to inverted duty structure adopted by exporting countries like Indonesia and Malaysia. These exporting nations are giving export duty benefits for finished products to their traders. Inverted duty structure impacts the domestic industry adversely as it has to pay a higher price for raw material in terms of duty, while the finished product lands at lower duty and costs low. Import duty on crude edible oil is about 2.5%, while on refined oils is 7.5%. (Source: Business Standard)

Chana
Chana futures opened the week on a negative note on account of higher kharif pulses sowing coupled with prospects of a better chana sowing in the coming season. However, prices picked up in the second half of the week on strong festive season demand. Improving demand from the millers due to declining supplies from the major producing regions also supported prices. The spot as well as the October Futures settled 1.72% and 0.61% higher respectively w-o-w. As per a circular by NCDEX dated August 21 2013, Special Margin of 5% on the Short side imposed earlier has been withdrawn in Chana with effect from beginning of day Friday, August 23, 2013.

Demand supply scenario


After producing record 18.45 mn tn Pulses, India is set to produce record crop for second year in row in 2013-14 as sowing during the ongoing kharif season is excellent propelled by good rains. Also, favorable soil moisture level has made ground for bumper Rabi harvest too. In value terms, India imported $2.3 billion of pulses in 2012-13, almost 28% higher over $1.85 billion in the previous year. However, imports may drop in 2013-14 season on expectations of higher output. Kharif Pulses witnessed a marginal decline in the output which was offset by a considerable rise in Rabi output, especially Chana during 2012-13. Higher returns earned in 2012, coupled with a hike in minimum support prices (MSP), helped expand overall chana acreage in 2012-13 seasons. Chana sowing in 2012-13 was 5.65% higher at 95.17 lakh ha compared to previous year. As per the estimates, Chana output was pegged at a record 8.8 mn tn compared with its third advance estimates of 8.49 million tonnes and a previous record of 8.2 mn tn in 2010-11.

Chana futures are expected to trade on a mixed note with a positive bias on account of a pickup in the physical demand especially from the millers on the back of declining supplies. Also, upcoming festive demand is expected to support prices. However, higher kharif pulses sowing and expectations of a better rabi sowing due to good rains in the chana producing regions may cap sharp gains and pressurize prices at higher levels.

Soybean
Soybean futures traded on a positive note last week and settled 0.32% higher due to higher international markets and robust soy meal export demand. Expectations of new season arrivals to commence in the coming days capped gains and pressurized prices earlier last week. In the domestic markets, although area under soybean this season is at record level, concerns over output remain as excessive rains in MP have damaged some soy crop. Overall production is still expected to remain higher due to early rains and increased planting As per data released by the ministry of Agriculture, area under oilseeds th was recorded at 192.51 la ha on 13 Sept, 2013, an increase of 12.6% as compared to the corresponding period last year.

Indias Soymeal exports jumped to 1.83 lk tn in August against 10,006 tn in August last year due to robust demand and favorable prices. International Markets CBOT Soybean traded on a positive to bullish note last week and settled 3.6% higher as the USDA monthly report revised soybean production estimates lower than August. The USDA monthly crop report kept the acreage to 77.2 mn acres unchanged from its earlier estimates. Harvest estimates have been trimmed to 3.149 bn bushels from the earlier estimates of 3.255 bn bushels. Forecast of 2013-14 ending stocks have also been slashed from 220 mn bushels in August to 150 mn bushels. Dry weather and heat conditions in the Midwest have raised yield concerns and support prices. Export demand further supported an upside in the prices. The USDA weekly crop progress report downgraded the good-toexcellent rating to 52% from 54% last week and 32% a year ago. USDA reported that 97% of the crop is setting pods vs. 99% a year ago. According to Agro consult, a local analyst, Brazil new soy crop is seen at a record 88.4 mn tn in 2013/14 as against 81.46 mn tn last year.

Also, an increase in the output is expected due to seasonally higher yield period, may cap sharp upside and pressurize prices. Malaysian palm oil futures had increased earlier on expectations that healthy exports will persist into September coupled with a weak Ringgit boosting export hopes.

Sugar
Sugar October futures traded with a negative bias last week as ample supplies along with expectations of a higher output and selling pressure from the mills have pressurized prices. However, a pickup in demand ahead of the festive season restricted a sharp decline and supported prices at lower levels. An increase in the import duty to curb the inflows also supported prices at lower levels. The spot as well as the October Futures settled 0.01% and 0.33% lower w-o-w. The Food Minister said that his ministry has moved a cabinet proposal to allow state governments to hike prices of sugar for PDS. Good monsoon conditions in Maharashtra and Karnataka has led to expectations of recovery in the cane yield, keeping prices under pressure.

Guar Complex
Guar complex which traded on a bullish note over the last 5 weeks on concerns over crop yield corrected sharply over the last two sessions on account of profit taking at higher levels. Holding back of stocks in anticipation of further rise in the prices also supported an upside rally in the complex. Despite of the regulator imposing 10 percent special margin on long side w.e.f from Wednesday, upside remained intact. Guar seed as well as Guar gum Futures settled 2.91% and 5.47% higher w-o-w. Special Margin of 10% on the Long side will be imposed on all running contracts and yet to be launched contracts in Guar Seed and Guar Gum w.e.f beginning of Wednesday Sept 11, 2013. This will be in addition to Special Margins imposed as stated in contract specifications. Dry and hot weather in the Guar areas in Rajasthan and Haryana may have an adverse impact on the yield. Supplies have declined in the last 23 weeks as farmers are not liquidating their stocks at lower levels. All these factors along with overall weakness in the Indian rupee supported an upside movement in the guar complex.

Monsoon and Sowing


Southwest monsoon which arrived early this season is seen retreating from the parts of Haryana and Rajasthan. Also, High temperature is affecting the growth of guar seeds sown after July 15. Almost 75-80 percent area in Rajasthan is rain fed while in Haryana 35-40 % area is dependent on rains. Guar is a rain-fed monsoon crop, which requires 8-15 inch of rain in 3-4 spells. According to Rajasthan Farm Department, Guar seed acreage as on 27 August, 2013 stood at 34.3 lakh hectares compared with 26.58 lakh hectares sown during the same period last year.

Production and Exports


According to Rajasthan Farm Departments third advance estimates, Guar seed production stood at 20.23 lakh tonnes in 2012-13. Although production is higher compared to the previous year, but still it is much below the initial expectations on account of erratic monsoon last year. In the coming season, higher sowing along with timely rains has raised hopes of bumper production earlier. However, the current dry spell may adversely impact output going forward. Exports which touched record 7.07 lakh tonnes in the FY 2011-12, declined in the FY 2012-13 as US, the largest importer of Guar gum has stocked huge inventories. However, Fuelled by demand in China and the US, guar gum export from India in April-May rose nearly 12 per cent but realization fell 57 per cent due to lower prices. (Source: Business standard).

Outlook
Guar prices may trade on a mixed note. Concerns over crop yield amid high temperature in Rajasthan and Haryana coupled with lower supplies, as farmers are also holding back their stocks expecting better realization in the coming days may support prices. However, overall higher output expectations due to higher acreage may cap sharp upside and pressurize prices at higher levels.
