India’s production of major oilseeds increased by around 6 percent over the past decade at the same time its population advanced by 9 percent. Although New Delhi restricts vegetable oil imports, particularly soyoil, to protect its domestic crushing industry, imports are significant and have been growing especially for sunflower oil.  Although some GMO soybeans are said to be illegally imported, production of them is banned. As a result, soybean yields in India are only about a quarter as large as those in Brazil and the U.S. The disparity between demand, domestic production, and imports means that at some point India will need to legitimize the production of GMO soybeans since increasing import dependence in a country focused on...

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.
