India is dependent on imports of certain agricultural products

Thursday, November 26, 2020

The most frequently imported agricultural products into India are vegetable oils, pulses, fresh fruit, raw cashew nuts, raw sugar, raw cotton and spices. Together, the value of these goods accounts for almost 84 percent of all agricultural imports. Since, according to the relevant ministries, vegetable oils account for the largest share of imports, a program called the “National Mission for Oilseeds and Oil Palm” was introduced. Increasing the volume of production and the yield and productivity of crops are the top priorities to reduce India’s dependence on imports of agricultural products.

Numerous government support programs have already been set up for the individual categories of oilseeds, cereals, pulses, fruits and spices. These aim, among other things, at security of food supply (National Food Security Mission, NFSM), NFSM especially for oilseeds and oil palm, Green Revolution for the East of India (BGREI), research in commercial horticulture and improvement of soil quality and health. In addition to government initiatives, the Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR) and public universities in the field of agriculture have started a number of projects to improve varieties and hybrid breeding to increase production and productivity. The NFSM oil crop and oil palm support program provides direct support to farmers. Concrete assistance includes distribution of certified seeds and seedlings, demonstrations, integrated pest management and control, pesticides, agricultural machinery, farmer training, irrigation equipment and local initiatives to promote the cultivation of oilseeds. FSSAI certification is required for all agricultural and food products offered on the Indian market. We would be happy to advise you on the procedure for an India certification and carry it out for you. Contact us for a free consultation without any obligation.
