Sugar output in India to drop on dry weather
Sugar output in India, the biggest producer after Brazil, is set to declinefor a second year as a drought curbs planting, potentially increasingimports. The harvest will fall 6.5 per cent to 23 mt in the year startingOctober 1 from 24.6 mt this year, according to the median of estimatesof four traders, an analyst, aproducer and an industry official compiled byBloomberg. That would be less than the local demand of more than 24mt in 2013- 2014, said Narendra Murkumbi, managing director of ShreeRenuka Sugars, Indias biggest refiner. Sugar has slumped 50 per cent inNew York since reaching athree- decade high in February 2011, asproduction from Brazil to Thailand and China increased, widening aglobal glut. Falling Indian production after three years of surplus mayboost imports and help curb a slide in prices, which has partly helpedglobal food costs tracked by the United Nations Food & AgricultureOrganisation to fall for a fifth month in February.

Fears over Cyprus’s bailout deal damaging
the euro zones fragile recovery roiled global financial and commoditymarkets, including palm, most of this week and kept investors on edge.
Palm’s dismal export performance in the first 25 days of the month also
upset market players and weighed on prices, which have lost more thanthree per cent this week. Exports fell 7.5 per cent over the period fromMarch 1- 25, from a month ago, due to a slowdown in shipments of crude palm oil. Traders are now waiting for cargo surveyor data onexports for the full month, due next Monday, and industry regulator dataon output and inventory, due in midApril, to gauge palms direction in thecoming months.

After declined on Thursday on account of increasing arrivals of new cropin the physical markets coupled with higher output expectations. Thespot as well as the futures settled 0.69% and 0.69% lower respectively.Arrivals have gained momentum in MP, the largest chana producing stateand shall soon commence in Rajasthan, the second largest producer.Thus, sharp upside is capped in the chana prices.New chana desi crop contain around 10 -12% moisture.The government has extended ban on export of pulses till March 31,2014. According to DGFT, there is an exception with export of kabulichana, organic pulses and lentils being allowed up to a ceiling of 10,000metric tonnes per annum.
Chana Sowing
Higher returns earned in 2012, coupled with a hike in minimum supportprices (MSP), have helped expand overall acreage in 2012-13 season. TheCentre has hiked the MSP by 14 per cent to Rs 3,200 a quintal for chanaand as part of its strategy to encourage farmers to grow more pulses toreduce import dependence.Chana sowing in the current season is 5.65% higher at 95.17 lakh hacompared to previous year. Acreage is up in Rajasthan, Maharashtra, MPand AP at 15.7 lakh ha, 12.53 lakh ha, 32.99 lakh ha and 7.33 lakh harespectively.
 According to second advance Estimates released on 8
Feb 2013, Totalpulses output for 2012-13 season has been pegged at 17.58 mn tn, down3.3% compared to previous year. The target for 2012-13 pulses cropoutput was set at 18.24 million tonne during the year. However, droughtconditions have hampered kharif pulses output, which has been onlypartially offset by Rabi pulses output, especially chana.Out of the total pulses output, kharif output is estimated at 23% lower at5.48 mn tn while rabi pulses output is pegged 8.72% higher at 12.09 mntn compared with the final estimates of 2011-12.There has been a sharp increase in the chana output estimates on theback of higher acreage and good yield. Chana output is expected tobreach its 2010-11 record of 8.2 mn tn and is estimated at 8.57 mn tn for2012-13. In its first advance estimates chana output was pegged at 7.9mn tn. However, erratic weather in M.P. may lower the yield.Assocham estimates, 21 mn tn of pulses demand in 2012-13 and is likelyto reach at 21.42 mn tn in 2013-14 and 21.91 MT in 2014-15. (Source:Agriwatch).
Trade Scenario
According to IBIS, imports of chana in the month of February declined to0.46 lakh metric tonnes compared to 2.31 lakh metric tonnes during theprevious month.India imports Chana mainly from Australia and Canada and higheravailability in these countries at comparatively cheaper rates is seenboosting imports of Chana to meet the domestic shortfall.In Australia, total chickpea production in 2012
13 is estimated to haveincreased to a record 713000 tones as compared with 485000.
Chana is expected to continue to decline today. Arrivals of chana mayincrease further once harvesting commences from the second largestproducing state, Rajasthan. Increasing arrival pressure may keep chanaprices under downside pressure. However, robust buying by the stockistsat lower levels may prevent sharp fall in the chana prices.
