India’s farm exports are all set to drop for the second straight year, with products monitored by the Agricultural and Processed Food Products Export Development Authority (Apeda) expected to record a 25% decline in outbound shipments in the current fiscal, according to sources, reports Banikinkar Pattanayak in New Delhi. The exports of dozens of commodities monitored by Apeda will likely touch $16 billion this fiscal, compared with $21.3 billion a year earlier, thanks primarily to a crash in global commodity prices, said the sources. Such products accounted for over a half of the country’s total farm exports in the last fiscal. Between April and November, the exports of such products dropped 27% from a year ago to $10.6 billion, far worse than an 18.5% decline in merchandise exports during this period, showed DGCIS data. Total farm exports could also fall to $30-33 billion in 2015-16 from almost $39 billion a year earlier, said the sources.
