Researchers confirm glyphosate resistance in junglerice

18-SEP-2018
New research published in the journal Weed Science shows certain populations of junglerice (Echinochloa colona) are now among a growing number of weeds resistant to the herbicide
CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS
WESTMINSTER, Colorado - There has been a lot of publicity in recent years about growers battling glyphosate-resistant pigweed in soybean and cotton crops. But pigweed isn't the only weed resistant to glyphosate. New research published in the journal Weed Science shows certain populations of junglerice (Echinochloa colona) are now among a growing number of weeds resistant to the herbicide.
Junglerice is a weedy grass that grows in rice, corn and vegetable crops, in gardens, on roadsides and along waterways - primarily on the U.S. West Coast and in the South. Populations of junglerice resistant to multiple herbicides have previously been found in Arkansas, California and Mississippi, but glyphosate wasn't among them. Now, though, new glyphosate-resistant populations have emerged in Mississippi and Tennessee.
A research team set out to determine the magnitude of junglerice's resistance to glyphosate and to identify the specific mechanisms of resistance. Their study showed a glyphosate-resistant population of junglerice discovered in Mississippi was four times more resistant to the herbicide than susceptible populations, while a population in Tennessee was seven times more resistant.
Researchers identified two separate mechanisms of resistance. In one population, resistance was attributed in part to a target-site mutation in an EPSPS gene. In a second population, resistance was conferred by the reduced translocation of glyphosate.
"Our research shows that integrated management strategies are fundamental to the effective control of junglerice," says Vijay Nandula, a plant physiologist with the USDA's Agricultural Research Service in Stoneville, Mississippi. "It is imperative that growers use a wide range of chemical, cultural and mechanical tools."

Crop losses to insects will accelerate as the globe warms: study

by Mongabay.com on 18 September 2018
  • Insect-driven losses of wheat, rice, and maize — the three major grain crops, which together provide more than 40 percent of calories consumed by humans worldwide — will increase 10 to 25 percent for every degree Celsius the average surface temperature of planet Earth rises, according to a study published in Science late last month.
  • While bug populations may actually decline in some tropical areas, major grain-producing regions in northern climates are projected to be among the hardest-hit.
Insects already eat between 5 and 20 percent of the most important grain crops produced around the world — and new research finds that they could be responsible for even more crop damage in the near future as global temperatures continue to rise.
Insect-driven losses of maize, rice, and wheat — the three major grain crops, which together provide more than 40 percent of calories consumed by humans worldwide — will increase 10 to 25 percent for every degree Celsius the average surface temperature of planet Earth rises, according to a study published in Science late last month.
A team of researchers led by scientists at the University of Washington and the University of Colorado Boulder (CU Boulder), both in the United States, used projected rises in global temperatures, crop yield statistics, and data on 38 insect species’ population growth and metabolic rates to predict the impacts climate change will have on losses of the three grain crops. While bug populations may actually decline in some tropical areas, major grain-producing regions in northern climates are projected to be among the hardest-hit.
“Crop losses will be most acute in areas where warming increases both population growth and metabolic rates of insects,” the authors write in the study. In other words, hotter temperatures will lead to bigger populations of pests and each of those insects will require more energy, driving them to eat more. “These conditions are centered primarily in temperate regions, where most grain is produced.”
Even in a scenario where countries meet their existing commitments to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions, the researchers found, Europe, the most productive wheat-growing region in the world, stands to lose 16 million tons of wheat every year, possibly more. Eleven European countries, including Denmark, Ireland, Sweden, and the U.K., could see increases in insect-induced wheat losses of 75 percent or higher, the study projects.
Global maize and rice output could be curtailed, as well, as hungrier and more numerous insects impact major producers in North America and Asia. In the U.S., the largest maize producer in the world, more than 20 million tons of the crop could be lost to insects every year if the current trajectory of global warming holds, a 40 percent increase. Meanwhile, more than 27 million tons of rice could be lost annually in China, which is responsible for one-third of the world’s rice production.
“In some temperate countries, insect pest damage to crops is projected to rise sharply as temperatures continue to climb, putting serious pressure on grain producers,” Joshua Tewksbury, a research professor at CU Boulder and co-lead author of the study, said in a statement.
“On average, the impacts from insects add up to about a 2.5 percent reduction in crop yield for every degree Celsius increase in temperature. For context, this is about half the estimated direct impact of temperature change on crop yields, but in north temperate areas, the impact of increases insect damage will likely be greater than the direct impact of climate on crop yields.”

THIS week marks National Rice Week, a nationwide campaign aiming to raise awareness of how versatile rice is, and what health benefits it can provide.
As one of the most consumed foods on the planet, it forms an important part of the diet of billions worldwide.
And it’s not just a side dish or an accompaniment, featuring quite prominently in several Indian recipes.
In celebration of rice and the delicious dishes it can help create, Glasgow Indian restaurants The Dhabba and Dakhin have put together some facts about rice to whet your appetite…


Rice is one of the most consumed foods on Earth, a staple in many countries around the world.
In fact, 50% of the population of India depends on the grain for sustenance.


Archaeological evidence of rice cultivation in India suggests that this grain was the basis of India’s ancient civilisations, with evidence of its use as far back as 6500 BC


It is believed that more than 40,000 varieties of rice exist with researchers working to improve its features like flavours and disease resistance.

The most popular rice in Indian cuisine is the Basmati rice.
Literally translated as ‘the fragrant one’, Basmati has been described as having the aroma of sun-baked wood and flowers.


Rice is an extremely important and integral part of Indian culture.
In many Indian cultures, rice is considered a symbol of prosperity and well-being; at weddings and prayers, it is an offering to religious deities for protection and blessings.
It’s also the first morsel of solid food fed to a baby as boiled rice or rice pudding.


The traditional biryani — an aromatic and fragrant preparation of spiced meats or vegetables layered with rice, is a feast to behold in itself, originating from medieval Persia.
It is served in the North and South of India with their own regional interpretations using local ingredients.


In the South of India, a region Dakhin specialises in, rice is found in plenty of dishes like the idli and dosa.
As a matter of fact, there a plenty of bread made from rice along with lentils or coconut. This nature of South Indian cuisine allows the whole restaurant to be gluten-free.

During recent Horizon Ag/Provisia field days, one of the main topics was the need to look anew at rice’s profitability and yield.
That theme continued recently when Tim Walker, Horizon Ag General Manager spoke with Delta Farm Press. Among his comments:
On expectations for the Provisia harvest in Arkansas…
“We expect (the harvest to go well) and based on some of the information (University of Arkansas rice specialist) Dr. (Jarrod) Hardke has put out from his yield plots, things are promising. Unfortunately, I don’t know we’ve had any field reports yet in respect to PVL01 (from Provisia). We’re still waiting to get some of that in.
“The trials Dr. Hardke has published in his weekly news reports certainly indicate we have some good yield potential with that variety. That’s exciting.”
On yield and profitability…
“Our mission as a company is to help the industry be viable over the long haul. We understand a farmer has to make decisions based on a lot of information.
“At the end of the day, he’s going to make the decision that he believes will be the most profitable. Especially in times of depressed prices, that decision is often ‘how can I stay in business one more year?’ Unfortunately, that’s the environment we’re in from a farm economy standpoint.
“The thing we don’t want to lose sight of is the fact that rice, though treated like a commodity in the United States, is a food crop. So, there are taste buds and preferences in a food crop that we don’t deal with so much in commodities like corn and soybean.
“Our message is: yield isn’t the only thing we need to consider when talking about profitability. For us to have a strong industry going forward we have to be aware of what people want to purchase.”
On three choices…
“From just a true farm profit standpoint, there are basically price points for a farmer to choose from when picking rice varieties. There are the public variety offerings that are the least expensive in terms of seed costs. (Clearfield and Provisia) fall in the middle where we operate on a pure-line platform, but we have herbicide technology in our varieties, so the price is more expensive than a conventional. The highest price, of course, is the hybrid platform whether herbicide-tolerant or others.
“When you look at net farm profitability, yield should be measured relative not just to the seed costs. There are other costs associated with producing a crop.
“When we evaluate where our seed price is next to the alternatives, we believe on a large majority of the acres we can be just as profitable. Or, in many cases, we can be more profitable. Our total cost of production compared to a university-released pure-line shows that certainly our seed cost is more. However, our herbicide costs and our newer offerings’ disease package means the total cost of production falls into our favor.
“On the other side of things, hybrids will normally yield more than a pure-line platform. However, because of the seed and other production costs, lots of times the yield magnitude isn’t enough to make it a more profitable option.
“Again, taking the long-term view, for the industry to be viable, we must produce rice people in the United States want to eat as well as valued export customers — Mexico, Central America, Canada.”
On keeping U.S. customers happy, IP, keeping varieties separate…
“In general, the problem has not been resolved. The bulk of the rice acres, after harvest, still goes into bins and can be mixed and mingled at various stages. That can happen on a farm, at a drying facility or at a load-out facility for export paddy rice.
“Now, there are certain entities that make it part of their business model to do a better job of keeping certain rices separate from others. But, largely, there’s still very few contracts out there that a farmer can latch on to — prior to planting or even prior to harvesting — that he’d see as worth his while to go through the identity preserved process.
“But more and more you hear of start-ups pressing for the (IP) model. And there are export customers who have come in and said ‘we want a specific variety.’ It puts us at a disadvantage, especially in export premium type markets, because in my travels I’ve seen there are countries doing a much better job of identity preservation. Therefore, the rice they offer is more competitive in terms of appearance, cooking and those sorts of things.”
On PVL01’s reception from foreign customers…
“It’s pretty exciting to bring it to market not only for the weed control but because we’ve spent a lot of time, effort and energy talking about quality for the consumer. Quality is certainly in the eye of the beholder and what’s considered as high quality in the U.S. may not be seen the same in other important export countries.
“But PVL01 is a very translucent grain. One of the complaints from customers in years past is chalky rice. Customers want the rice to be very translucent when they’re looking at it in a bag. PVL01 is probably the least chalky variety released in the United States in quite some time — probably among the top ever released.
“The Nicaraguan chalk standard is probably the most stringent in the Western Hemisphere and it passes that with flying colors.
“PVL01 also has a slightly higher amylose content. Amylose is a major contributing factor in the final cooked texture of rice. Lots of customers want rice that’s loose and fluffy unlike a sushi-type rice that’s very sticky. Because of the higher amylose content, PVL01 cooks a bit more loose and fluffy compared to some of our other varieties.
“Finally, PVL01 has a very long grain. Countries like Iraq are looking for milled rice grain at 7 millimeters or longer. PVL01, at a 7.2-millimeter grain length, is the longest we’ve released in a long while.”

Davao mayor creates body to monitor rice

September 18, 2018
TO ENSURE the availability of basic necessities and prime commodities at a reasonable price in Davao City, the City Mayor's Office (CMO) released an executive order (EO) creating the rice supply and price monitoring committee.

The EO stated that due to the recent rice shortage issues in various Philippine cities, there is a need to create a body to protect the city from such happenings.

“This committee will be taking care of the rice supply, rice concerns and complaints, and also the hoarding through monitoring and inspection of warehouses,” Davao City Councilor Marissa Abella said during the Pulong-Pulong ni Pulong on Tuesday, September 18, 2018, said.

The committee will conduct study on the causes of price fluctuations within the city; recommend measures to address unwanted rice price increase and supply shortages; and activate hotlines and consumers’ complaints desks.

The regular monitoring and inspection of public and private markets, stores, and rice warehouses will also be a part of the function of the committee.

Meanwhile, Abella said there is also a need to focus on rice production.

“Our supply now is only 10 percent, so maybe we could expand on the mountainous area,” Abella said.

“Dako man kaayo ta ug yuta, 60 percent of our area is naa sa Marilog and Paquibato. Why dono’t we ask technology from Benguet because ang yuta didto is not really flat (We have a wide land, 60 percent of our area is in Marilog and Paquibato. Why don’t we ask technology from Benguet because the land there is not flat),” she said. (LHC)

As rice harvest in the Sacramento Valley begins to ramp up, farmers say prospects for their 2018 crop look good, with only minimal stocks remaining in warehouses and buyers "eagerly waiting" for the new crop.
Growers enter the harvest season with one of the smallest carryovers they've had since before the state's four-year drought in 2013, said Chris Crutchfield, president and CEO of Williams-based American Commodity Co., which markets rice domestically and internationally.
"California right now is out of rice," Sutter County grower Steve Butler said. "Most of the warehouses are empty and have been since mid- to late summer."
California farmers are on track to harvest some 500,000 acres of rice this year, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture. That's up from 445,000 acres in 2017, when torrential spring rains and flooded fields prevented some growers from planting the acres they wanted.
Despite the reduced acreage last year, a robust crop in 2016, coupled with higher global supplies, kept downward pressure on prices. Marketers spent all last year and the early part of this year selling "a lot of cheap rice," Butler said. Now that supplies are depleted, "people are anxiously awaiting the 2018 crop," he added.
"It's always better to have our new crop being anticipated by the marketplace because we get a lot of volume moved in a hurry, and that's good for everybody," he said.
Meanwhile, growers up and down the valley have been busy draining fields and readying their harvesters, while those with earlier-maturing varieties have begun harvest.
Jon Munger, manager of Montna Farms in Sutter County, said late spring rains delayed planting by 10 to 14 days, so harvest is now starting a little later, and recent mild weather has not helped. He noted the moisture level on a field of short-grain rice, which matures earlier, was still a bit high last week but was expected to be ready this week.
Harvest of some medium-grain rice, which makes up the bulk of the state's rice acreage, is expected to begin later this week.
Though growers won't know their actual yields until they harvest the crop, some have described production this year as average to good.
"Overall, we expect it to be a normal crop at this point," Munger said.
Luis Espino, a University of California Cooperative Extension farm advisor, said there are concerns that sustained high temperatures in July may have affected yields, but the heat also sped growth of the crop, allowing delayed plantings to catch up a bit. Though weeds and pests continue to be a problem for growers, he said, "I don't think this year was particularly bad."
Butte County grower Ralph Cassady said he started draining his fields last week and is about three weeks away from harvest. Wet fields in the spring may have delayed planting, he said, but for the most part, farmers were able to plant all the acres they intended. He said some growers opted to fallow land in order to transfer water to districts south of the delta.
As a member of the Red Top Rice Growers Association in Biggs, Cassady said the rice-drying co-op currently is "completely empty" of rice, which he characterized as "unique."
"Last year at this time we had quite a lot of rice in there, but it's all gone now," he said. "We're pretty positive about it because there's not much carryover left, if any."
With market prices climbing in the spring in reaction to the lower stocks, Sutter County grower David Richter said he decided to plant more rice instead of corn, as corn prices remained depressed. Though he's still about 10 days away from harvest, he described his rice fields as looking "better than average."
"Everybody has a good feeling because a lot of the other crops have been doing well," he said, including tomatoes, wheat and beans. "So when you have good crops, you usually expect a good crop for rice."
Crutchfield said while he doesn't expect to be selling rice at the "prohibitively high" prices that were being quoted during the summer, he's also not concerned about moving the new crop. Even though California acreage is up from last year, it's not what it was in 2016. And with the "lowest carry-in stocks in recent memory," he said he does not expect the state will face an oversupply.
"I think prices will remain at a profitable level all season, and I think they will remain stable probably at least until January," he said.
The upcoming rainy season will give markets a better idea of how much rice California farmers may end up growing next spring, and that could move market prices up or down, depending on precipitation and water availability, he added.
In the meantime, demand for California medium-grain rice has been picking up in key Asian export markets of Japan, South Korea and Taiwan, Crutchfield said. Marketers also are seeing "a lot of inquiries" for the new crop from the Middle East, another important market for California rice, he added.
At the same time, Australia, which competes with California, is expected to plant a smaller rice crop this year due to drought and lack of water. Egypt, another exporter of medium-grain rice, has "drastically limited rice plantings for the season" and is poised to be a net importer of rice this year, Crutchfield said.
California rice does have to contend with China, which has become a main competitor in the medium-grain rice market, he said. Though it's the world's largest importer of rice, China now competes with California in Japan, Korea and the Middle East. It is also competing with California in the domestic market of Puerto Rico, where "we are starting to see a lot of medium-grain rice from China show up," effectively displacing medium-grain rice grown in U.S. states such as Arkansas and Louisiana. That Southern rice now has to find a home by competing with California rice in markets such as Taiwan, Crutchfield added.

Jakarta (ANTARA) - Director General of Foreign Trade Oke Nurwan said shipments of rice imported by Indonesia from India and Pakistan have been delayed on extreme weather.

"Information from Bulog said there is problem of bad weather in the exporting countries," Oke said here on Tuesday.

Based on information from the Trade Ministry, Bulog has asked for extension of import license because of the delay in the shipment of 440,000 tons of rice.

The request for the import license extension was signed by Bulog chief Budi Waseso on 18 July, 2018 addressed to the Trade Minister.

Earlier, Budi Waseso had been quoted as saying that there was no need for importing rice and that there would be no import of rice until the end of 2018. Budi Waseso also had said Bulog had more than enough stocks of rice and that Bulog has no warehouse to store more rice.

Rice imports have triggered controversy partly heated by Budi Waseso`s statements.

Observers criticized the Bulog chief for issuing such statements while signing a request for extension of rice import license twice on 13 July 2018 and 23 August 2019.

The import license was for 1 May until 31 August 2018.

Oke said the Trade Ministry approved the requests for extension because of the shipment problem over bad weather.

He said Bulog is given the charge of rice imports.

Chief Economic Minister for Economy Darmin Nasution seeking to end the controversy said rice imports are needed to keep the price of the staple food from rising. In addition Bulog has not fully succeeded in procuring rice from farmers to strengthen its stocks and domestic production fell short of expectation.

Meanwhile, Director of Center For Budget Analysis (CBA) Uchok Sky Khadafi asked Bulog chief Budi Waseso to clean Bulog from `rice Mafia`.

Uchok said Budi Waseso should evaluate the performance of Bulog procurement Director Bachtiar. Uchok, however, gave no reason for his suggestion.

DA reports P8.97-B rice losses after ‘Ompong’


BULACAN. A group of ducks swim in floodwaters brought about by Typhoon Mangkhut which barreled into northeastern Philippines during the weekend and inundated low-lying areas in its 900-kilometer wide cloud band, Monday, Sept. 17, 2018 in Calumpit, Bulacan province. (AP)
September 18, 2018
RICE that could have fed the entire nation for at least eight days was damaged when Typhoon Ompong flooded paddy fields in central and northern Luzon over the weekend, hindering government efforts to lower the price of the staple.

As of Monday, September 17, the Department of Agriculture (DA) said the typhoon damaged paddy fields that could have produced 435,997 metric tons valued at P8.97 billion and “equivalent to 8.64 days rice consumption of the country.”

Lost rice production in the 397,204 hectares affected by the typhoon comprised more than half, or 62.82 percent, of the initial crop losses reported as of Monday and 39.91 percent of the total rice standing crops of the Cordillera, Ilocos, Cagayan Valley, Central Luzon and Calabarzon regions, which is 995,218 hectares.

The DA, in a social media post on the account of Secretary Emmanuel PiƱol, said the agriculture sector incurred losses of P14.27 billion as of Monday. This is seen to increase as reports come in from other regions.

The typhoon affected a total of 553,704 hectares of agricultural areas with an estimated volume of production loss at 731,294 metric tons.

These figures covered the Cordillera and Cagayan Valley regions. Products covered were rice, corn, high value crops and livestock.

Most of the affected rice crops were reported to be damaged and were on reproductive stage affecting a total of 212,491 farmers.

Provinces heavily affected include Nueva Ecija in Central Luzon amounting to P2.84 billion, followed by Cagayan in Cagayan Valley with P2.77 billion.

In the corn sector, damage and losses amounted to P 4.5 billion, affecting a total of 148,587 hectares with estimated volume of production loss at 281,039 metric tons.

Most of the affected crops were on their reproductive stage, which were reported as damaged.

Meanwhile, the losses in high value crops also increased to P788.13 million affecting 7,913 hectares in the Cordilleras and the provinces of Rizal, Cagayan and Isabela.

Lost production was estimated at 14,258 metric tons, which are mostly on their reproductive stage.

As for livestock, losses have been reported in the Cordillera region, with 20,316 animal heads affected (103 heads in livestock and 20,213 heads in poultry), amounting to P5.51 million or 1.01 percent of the overall damage and losses.

Damage to irrigation facilities amounted to P15.72 million, affecting small-water impounding projects, impounding dams and spillways in Ilocos Norte.

USDA pegs India's 2017-18 Rice crop at record 112.9 MT
Commodity Online | September 18 2018
UPDATED 10:43:34 IST

Description: https://www.commodityonline.com/uploads/news/2018/09/1537247711.jpg
India is estimated to produce a record 112.9 million tonnes of Rice from 43.8 million hectares during the MY 2017/18 (October-September), the US Department of Agriculture's (USDA) Foreign Agricultural Service (FAS) said in its latest report.

Based on the yield information from the crop cutting surveys, most of the production increase can be accounted for by higher-than-expected yields in the southern states of Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh, and Karnataka, and in the northern state of Punjab, the report said.

Excellent post monsoon rains (October-November 2017) supported a strong recovery in rabi rice production in southern India that had been adversely affected by insufficient rains last year.

MY 2017/18 rabi rice production is estimated at a record 15.4 million tonnes compared to 13.4 million tonnes last year, and the previous record of 15.3 million tonnes in MY 2010/11. Kharif production is estimated at a record 97.5 million tonnes compared to last year’s previous record production of 96.3 million tonnes, USDA said.

Post estimates MY 2017/18 total ending stocks higher at 21.8 million tonnes based on larger-than-expected current government rice stocks. Fueled by strong procurement and relatively weak offtake in the last few months, government rice stocks on August 1, 2018, are officially estimated at 24.9 million tonnes, compared to 23.7 million tonnes during the same time last year. Assuming that the current pace of offtake continue through August-September, MY 2017/18 government rice ending stocks are estimated higher at 18.8 million tonnes compared to 17.5 million tonnes last year.

Trade sources report rice stocks with private trade unchanged from last year’s levels. Consequently, Post MY 2017/18 ending stocks have been raised to 21.8 million tonnes (18.8 million tonnes government stocks and 3.0 million tonnes private stocks).
Philippine paddy rice losses from typhoon exceed forecasts
SEPTEMBER 17, 2018 / 7:01 AM

MANILA (Reuters) - The Philippines lost a total of 250,730 tonnes of paddy rice due to the strong typhoon that hit its northern provinces over the weekend, according to initial official estimates, exceeding a worst-case forecast by 60 percent.

The Philippines, one of the world’s biggest rice importers, had been under pressure to boost its stocks of the grain even before Typhoon Mangkhut struck, with soaring retail prices helping to push inflation to its highest in nearly a decade.

The Department of Agriculture initially estimated crop damage at about 9.6 billion pesos ($177 million), but said that may increase as more field reports come in.

“We’re looking at about 11 to 12 billion (pesos) in agricultural damage,” Agriculture Secretary Emmanuel Pinol said in an interview with CNN Philippines.

“It’s not a nice figure to look at.”

Typhoon Mangkhut has swept over Hong Kong and Macau and on into China’s southeast province of Guangdong, after devastating the Philippines, where the death toll is likely to surpass 50.

MORE RICE, CORN IMPORTS LIKELY
Even before the storm hit, the Philippines had already planned to import an additional 383,500 tonnes of rice this year, on top of approved purchases earlier this year of more than 1 million tonnes.

The state grains procurement agency, National Food Authority, also has a “standby authority” to import an additional 250,000 tonnes for delivery early next year.

Prospects of new deals with the Philippines pushed up export prices last week from its main supplier Vietnam.

The nation’s rice crop losses from the typhoon were bigger than the agriculture ministry’s forecast of up to 157,000 tonnes in a worst-case scenario.

“The rice sector could recover because we have coordinated with the National Irrigation Administration ... to not close the irrigation systems because right after the typhoon our farmers actually could replant,” Pinol said in the interview.

“But for corn, it’s a sad sight. Almost all crops were damaged,” he said. Pinol said he may recommend that the country also import corn to fill the possible shortfall.

Pinol downplayed the impact of rice crop losses on prices, saying there are still enough stocks in typhoon-hit regions and that the harvest season in other areas has begun. https://www.reuters.com/article/us-northkorea-southkorea-summit-inspecti/north-korea-to-allow-international-inspections-for-nuclear-dismantlement-if-u-s-takes-reciprocal-measures-idUSKCN1LZ09F?il=0

Plan to convert more rice fallow land to pulses, oilseeds during rabi season

NEW DELHI, SEPTEMBER 18
The government has set a foodgrain target of 285.2 million tonnes (mt) for 2018-19, which is marginally higher than the expected production in 2017-18, the agriculture ministry said here on Tuesday.
As per the fourth advance estimates released by the Government last month, the foodgrain harvest in 2017-18 would be around 284.83 mt, aided by record production in staple as well as other mainline crops.
While 2018-19 rice production target is 113 mt as against 112.91 mt projected for the previous year, wheat yield is set at 100 mt, a touch higher than 99.7 mt expected in 2017-18.
“Cutting across all States, standing kharif crop looks very good, indicating the harvest this year is going to be good,” agriculture secretary Shobhana K Pattanayak said on the sidelines of the national conference on agriculture for rabi campaign 2018-19.

Pulses, oilseeds cultivation

According to him, the ministry has drawn up a plan to bring an additional 1.8 million hectares of rice fallow land under pulses and oilseeds cultivation during rabi season. This is in addition to 1.2 million hectares rice fallow area brought under oilseeds and pulses cultivation last rabi season, and thus the total fallow area used for the rabi cultivation would be three million hectares.
“There are about 11 million hectares fallow left a year – 8 million hectares in eastern parts of the country and 3 million hectares in the south,” said agriculture commissioner SK Malhotra. “The idea is to help use this land left unplanted during rabi season to grow crops which are important to us, such as oilseeds and pulses,” Malhotra said. The crops that are expected to be grown are pulses crops such as urad, moong and gram as well as mustard, linseed and sesamum as oil crops.
The pulses production targeted for 2018-19 is 25 mt, while oilseeds output in sight is 36 mt, nearly 15 per cent more than the expected production of 31.31 mt in 2017-18.

Pest attack

Even though fall army worm infestation in parts of Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh and Telangana may bring down maize output, the yield is expected to be around 28 mt, which is marginally lower than a record 28.72 mt eyed for 2017-18.
Similarly, the targeted cotton production in the current year is 35.5 million bales of 170 kg each as against 34.9 million bales expected in 2017-18. The ministry, on the other hand, has anticipated a fall in sugarcane production to 355 mt, which is contrary to the expectations of industry. The sugarcane output in 2017-18 is estimated at 377 mt.

Despite patchy rainfall in some parts, the Agriculture Ministry has set a foodgrain production target of 285.2 million tonnes for 2018-19, a marginal increase from the previous year’s harvest of 284.8 million tonnes.
Rainfall deficit during the current monsoon season is now at 10%, according to the Indian Meteorological Department.

“Some areas got extra rainfall, some areas were deficient. But in spite of the patchy rains, we are expecting that the overall production will still be good for the kharif season,” Minister of State for Agriculture Parshottam Rupala told participants at the Ministry’s annual conference on strategies for the rabi, or winter crop season, on Tuesday.
The 2018-19 targets for rice, at 113 million tonnes, and wheat, at 100 million tonnes, are marginally higher than last year’s harvest. However, the targets for pulses, coarse cereals and maize are slightly lower.

‘Balanced targets’

“Targets should be balanced, not too high,” Agriculture Commissioner S.K. Malhotra told The Hindu. “We must produce enough to address food and nutrition security needs, but we must also address the income security of farmers. If targets are too high, and there is excess production, farmers will suffer,” he said, adding that there was a need to improve access to export markets in the case of high production.
Description: India targets slight increase in 2018-19 foodgrain output

Over the last two years of normal monsoons and record harvests, prices of several commodities have crashed, hurting many farmers. The government has ramped up procurement of pulses and oilseeds in an effort to ensure that more farmers receive the minimum support price (MSP) for these crops even as the market rates fall, but that has led to a shortage of storage capacity.
“We are holding 44 lakh tonnes of pulses, 57 lakh tonnes including oilseeds,” S.K. Verma, executive director of the National Agricultural Cooperative Marketing Federation of India (NAFED), said. “In States like Rajasthan, Maharashtra, Gujarat and Madhya Pradesh, there is no space left in the godowns.” Warehouse capacity is making some States consider the new Central scheme to pay oilseed farmers the cash differential between MSP and market prices. A ministry official told The Hindu that Madhya Pradesh and Gujarat have expressed interest in opting for the scheme, which was approved by the Union Cabinet as part of a wider 15,053 crore procurement policy.
