Khariff pulses production is expected to rise from 6 MMT in 2013/14 to an estimated 9.22 MMT in 2018/19. Meanwhile, the rabi production grew from 11.03 MMT in 2011/12 to 15.89 MMT in 2017/18 with 15.1 MMT the target for 2018/19.

Communicating importance of value-added products

Facing increasing pressure to quantify the value of export promotion efforts to investors, a U.S. industry organization retained WPI to develop a quantitative model that better communicated the importance of exports. The resulting model concluded that value-added meat exports contributed $0.45 cents per bushel to the price of corn, increasing support for that sector’s financial support of WPI’s client. In addition to serving the red meat industry with this type of analysis, WPI has generated similar deliverables for the U.S. soybean and poultry/egg industries.
