Global Coffee Output May Dip 3.6 Per cent in the 2009-10

Global coffee output may dip 3.6% : ICO

.

Global coffee output may dip 3.6 per cent to 7.41 million tonnes (mt) in the 2009-10 crop year on fall in production in Brazil and Africa, the International Coffee Organisation (ICO) said.

.

Adverse climatic conditions in few growing regions may also affect crop quality, it added.

.

Last year, world coffee output had stood at 7.69 mt, it said, adding that the estimate for this year is preliminary as data from Colombia and Vietnam is pending.

.

“With factors such as a prolonged dry season and high levels of coffee berry borer infestation, there appears to be little possibility of an increase in global production,” ICO said in its latest market report.

In Other major Commodities Update, there are news of rabi productions falling short of expectations and Uttarakhand government seems not to be increasing the sugar price.

🙂

.

Rabi output may fail to meet estimates:

.

All eyes are now on the estimates for the rabi crop this year.

A good winter crop (rabi) will help augment the foodgrain supply and ease food prices.

.

Hopes of a good crop have been fuelled by favourable weather conditions and the greater thrust on increasing the rabi crop.

.

The Union agriculture ministry has already indicated that the rabi season, this year, may see an additional 10 million tonne (mt) of output over the past year’s production, implying a growth of 8%.

.

This optimism on the rabi crop has prompted the Central Statistical Organisation or CSO — the government’s statistics arm — to estimate a meagre fall of 0.2% in agri output this year despite a 16% fall in the kharif (or summer crop) output due to the deficient monsoon.

.

Uttarakhand not to increase sugarcane price:

.

The Uttarakhand government seems to be in no mood to increase the price of Rs 215-220 per quintal for sugarcane despite a hefty increase by private sugar mills.

.

In the first week of December, the government announced the state advised price (SAP) of Rs 192-197 at a time when farmers were agitating for a price of Rs 250.

.

But soon, the private mills began paying heavy bonuses to farmers in the face of acute shortfall in a desperate bid to keep the factories running.

The government too decided to give bonus with a final price of Rs 215-220.

India May Import 3 Million Tonnes Sugar In 2010/11

Hello Friends here we come up with the Latest Major Agri-Commodities updates from various parts of the globe.

India May Import 3 Million Tonnes Sugar In 2010/11

India May Import 3 Million Tonnes Sugar In 2010/11

India, the world’s biggest consumer of sugar, may import 2.5-3 million tonnes of the sweetener in 2010/11 as domestic output is seen falling short of demand for a third straight year.

Raw sugar futures had rocketed to 28-½ year top on huge imports from the South Asian country, while whites hit a record earlier this year.

In 2009/10 season lower area and drought will keep India’s output at 15.3 million tonnes, a little more than last year’s output of 15 million tonnes, falling severely short of domestic consumption for a second straight year.

There is a margin of 200 rupees per quintal (100 kg) in imports.

So, provided the domestic prices remain firm, millers in Maharashtra would be interested in buying more raw sugar.

In Other major Commodities Updates we can see that World coffee output may fall in 2009-10

World coffee output may fall in 2009-10: Trade body

Global coffee production during the 2009-10 crop year may dip below last year’s level of 128.1 million bags due to bad weather in top three growing countries — Brazil, Vietnam and Colombia, according to the International Coffee Organisation (ICO).

If production falls are confirmed, the global coffee exports are also expected to decline this year.

Production in Brazil, the world’s biggest coffee producer, is estimated to be 39 million tonnes in the 2009-10 season, against 45.99 million bags in a year ago.

ICO said, however, production is expected to rise in Asia, Africa and Central America.
