The move is aimed for optimum utilisation of raw bamboo and higher profitability in the bamboo industry

Khadi and Village Industries Commission (KVIC) has urged the Government of India to lift the export prohibition on bamboo charcoal for optimum utilisation of raw bamboo and higher profitability in the bamboo industry. One of the biggest challenges that the Indian bamboo industry faces today is the extremely high input cost owing to the inadequate utilisation of bamboo. However, the export of bamboo charcoal would ensure complete utilisation of the bamboo waste and thus make the bamboo business more profitable.

KVIC Chairman Vinai Kumar Saxena has written to Union Minister of Commerce and Industries, Piyush Goyal, seeking to lift the export restriction on bamboo charcoal for the larger benefit of the bamboo industry.

Saxena said the bamboo waste can be best utilised by making ‘Bamboo Charcoal’ which, though has very limited use within the domestic market but is hugely in demand in the international market. However, the Indian bamboo industry is not able to tap the opportunity due to its ‘export prohibition.’ Considering the repeated requests of the industry, KVIC has requested the government to consider lifting the export restriction on bamboo charcoal.

Notably, the world import demand for bamboo charcoal has been hovering in the range of $1.5 to 2 billion and has been growing at the rate of 6 per cent in recent years. Bamboo charcoal for barbeque sells for about Rs 21,000 to Rs 25,000 per ton in the international market. Besides, it is also used for soil nutrition and as a raw material for manufacturing activated charcoal. Rising import demand is witnessed in countries like the US, Japan, Korea, Belgium, Germany, Italy, France and the UK at negligible import duty.

The move is aimed for optimum utilisation

This marks a significant milestone for DSM, paving the way for Bovaer to revolutionise the dairy market

Royal DSM, a global purpose-led science-based company, has announced that European Union (EU) member states have approved the marketing of the methane-reducing feed additive for dairy cows, Bovaer, in the EU. After inclusion in the EU registry, expected in the coming weeks, it is the first time a feed additive authorised in the EU for environmental benefits can be marketed. This marks a significant milestone for DSM, paving the way for Bovaer to revolutionise the dairy market.

Bovaer will contribute to the greening of the EU’s agriculture, and to the objectives of the Farm to Fork Strategy.  As stated in the European Commission’s confirmation of approval, the innovative feed additive is safe for use without impacting the quality of dairy products and is the first of its kind to be available within the EU which can reduce methane emissions.

DSM’s ruminant feed additive Bovaer consistently reduces these methane emissions by around 30 per cent. EU market authorisation, therefore, represents a ground-breaking step toward more sustainable milk production, giving farmers, dairy companies and retailers a trusted and safe product with proven efficacy that will substantially lower dairy’s carbon footprint.

Bovaer is the result of a decade of scientific research, including more than 50 peer-reviewed studies published in independent scientific journals and 48 on-farm trials in 14 countries across 4 continents. DSM has entered into partnerships with several major dairy companies to prepare for the implementation of Bovaer at a large scale. DSM has also already begun engineering works for a large-scale Bovaer plant at DSM’s manufacturing site in Dairy, Scotland.

This marks a significant milestone for DSM,

Benson Hill expects 2021 consolidated revenues to be in the range of $145 to $149 million

Benson Hill, has announced that it preliminarily expects 2021 consolidated revenues to be in the range of $145 to $149 million, ahead of the prior guidance of $127 million. On an organic and normalised basis, revenues in the ingredients segment are anticipated to nearly double versus 2020 due to high demand in the proprietary soy portfolio for the food, feed and oil markets and higher prices for yellow pea ingredients. Revenues in the Fresh segment are expected to be relatively flat versus 2020, as higher volumes were nearly offset by pricing pressure due to softness in the fresh produce market.

The Company preliminarily expects a net loss of $126 to $130 million and non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA loss in the range of $80 to $84 million for 2021. Losses were impacted as a result of start-up costs at the recently acquired Seymour facility and lower gross margins, particularly in the Fresh segment.

“Our 2021 preliminary revenue results demonstrate our ability to scale our supply chain and deliver products to meet our customers’ needs,” said Matt Crisp, Chief Executive Officer of Benson Hill.

 The Company expects 2022 consolidated revenues in the range of $315 to $350 million and an adjusted EBITDA loss that is slightly higher than in 2021. The Company anticipates a significant majority of top-line growth to come from the ingredients segment, with revenues of $250 to $275 million. It is expected that $90 to $100 million of revenue will be derived from the addition of the legacy Creston business.

Benson Hill expects improved financial performance in the Fresh segment based on a modest price recovery as the year progresses and a shift to more Company controlled farmed products. As a result, the Company expects 2022 Fresh revenues to be $65 to $75 million.

Benson Hill expects 2021 consolidated revenues to

Scientists have identified a few promising chickpea genes encoding for enzymes like chitinase and endochitinase, which can provide some degree of defence against DRR infection

Indian scientists have identified that high-temperature drought conditions and low soil moisture content are favourable conditions for dry root rot (DRR), a disease that damages the roots or girdles the trunk in chickpea. This work will be useful for the development of resistant lines and better management strategies.

Dry root rot disease causes reduced vigour, dull green leaf colour, poor new growth, and twig dieback. If extensive root damage occurs, the leaves suddenly wilt and dry on the tree. The increasing global average temperature is leading to the appearance of many new plant disease-causing pathogens at a rate hitherto unheard of, one of them being Macrophomina phaseolina, a soil-borne necrotrophic that causes root rot in chickpea. Currently, the central and southern states of India have been identified as the prime chickpea DRR hotspots with an overall 5 – 35 per cent disease incidence. 

Considering the destructive potential of the pathogen and a real possibility of an epidemic scenario in future, a team led by Dr Mamta Sharma at ICRISAT embarked on a journey to unravel the science behind DRR in chickpea. 

The team which closely monitored the disease identified that high temperatures ranging between 30 to 35 degrees, drought conditions, and less than 60 per cent soil moisture content are favourable conditions for dry root rot (DRR). 

This work supported and funded by the Department of Science & Technology, Government of India at the Center of Excellence in Climate Change at ICRISAT proved the close association of this disease with climatic factors. The results have been published in ‘Frontiers in Plant Science’.  

The scientists explained that Macrophomina survives in a wide range of environmental conditions, even at extremes of temperature, soil pH, and moistures. In chickpea, DRR is highly prevalent during the flowering and podding stages coinciding with high temperature and drought conditions. They are now exploring ways to use the study for the development of resistant lines and better management strategies.

The team is also trying to address the disease favourable conditions identified from a molecular perspective. 

In a recent breakthrough in gene expression studies, scientists have identified a few promising chickpea genes encoding for enzymes like chitinase and endochitinase, which can provide some degree of defence against DRR infection. 

The team at ICRISAT, in collaboration with ICAR research institutes, has also adopted several multi-pronged approaches, including continuous surveillance, better detection techniques, development of forecast models, screening assays, etc., to fight against such deadly plant diseases.

The minister was speaking at the recently held CII Manufacturing Conclave 2022

India will play an increasing role in the revival and restoration of international economies, said Piyush Goyal, Union Minister for Commerce & Industry, Textiles, Consumer Affairs and Food & Public Distribution at CII Manufacturing Conclave 2022.

“We do have international geopolitical uncertainties as we see today on the Ukraine-Russia crisis, but I am very confident that India will play an increasingly important role in the revival and restoration of international economies in the years ahead. In the post-covid world we are going to see a new world order and India, though we may be a $3 trillion economy today, should aspire for very, very bold and aggressive targets. I think we can still aim for the $5 trillion economy by 2026 but it’s not possible unless all of you participate with full gusto in this very, very ambitious plan,” said Goyal in his address through video conferencing.

Goyal called upon the industry champions to invest heavily in labour-intensive sectors.

“You have the power to lift the millions out of poverty, you have the power to give a better quality of life to the underprivileged. Together we can create not lakhs but crores of jobs in the Textiles sector, Agri/Food Processing, there are so many sectors where Labour is an important element of cost, that’s our competitive or comparative advantage that we should leverage,” he said.

Goyal said India needs to focus on our EDGE in Global Competition, – Economies of Scale, Demographic Dividend, Government and Industry focus on Quality & Efficiency. “For ‘Brand India’ to emerge, we need a mindset change towards quality from Compliance to Consciousness,” he said.

The minister was speaking at the recently

The PM emphasises various measures adopted by the government for the agri sector

Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed a webinar on the positive impact of Union Budget 2022 in the agriculture sector. He discussed how the Budget will contribute to strengthening the sector. The webinar was focussed on ‘Smart Agriculture’- Strategies for implementation. Concerned Union Ministers, representatives of state governments, representatives from industry and academia and farmers through various Krishi Vigyan Kendras were present on the occasion.

At the outset, the Prime Minister noted the third anniversary of the launch of PM Kisan Samman Nidhi. “This scheme has become a strong support for the small farmers of the country. Under the scheme, almost Rs 1.75 lakh crore has been given to 11 crore farmers,” he said. The Prime Minister talked about many new systems spanning from seed to market and also about the reforms in the old systems in the agriculture sector. 

“In just six years agriculture budget has been increased manifold. Agriculture loans for farmers were also increased by two and half times in the last seven years”, he added. He pointed out that during the difficult period of the pandemic, three crore farmers were given Kisan Credit Cards (KCC) as part of the special drive and the facility of KCC was extended to farmers engaged in animal husbandry and fisheries. Micro-irrigation network has also been strengthened to the great benefit of the small farmers,” he said.

The Prime Minister elaborated on the seven ways in which the Budget proposes to make agriculture modern and smart. Firstly, The target is to undertake natural farming on mission mode within five kilometres on both the banks of the Ganges. Secondly, modern technology in agriculture and horticulture will be made available to the farmers. Thirdly, emphasis has been laid on strengthening Mission Oil Palm to reduce the import of edible oil. Fourthly, new logistics arrangements will be made through PM Gati-Shakti’s plan for the transportation of agricultural products. The fifth solution in the Budget is better organisation of agri-waste management and increasing farmers’ income through waste to energy solutions. Sixthly, more than 1.5 lakh post offices will provide services like regular banking so that farmers are not troubled. Seventh, Agri research and education syllabus will be changed as per demands of modern times about skill development and human resource development.

The Prime Minister noted the year 2023 is recognised as the International Year of Millets and called upon the corporate world to come forward in branding and promoting Indian millets. He also asked major Indian missions abroad to organise seminars and other promotional activities to popularise the quality and benefits of Indian millets. The Prime Minister also asked for leveraging increasing awareness for environmental-friendly lifestyle and resulting market for natural and organic products. He exhorted the KVKs to create awareness for natural farming by adopting a village each for the promotion of natural farming.

Modi emphasised the need for increased soil testing culture in India. Highlighting the government’s focus on the Soil Health Cards, he called upon the startups to come forwards to facilitate the practice of soil testing at regular intervals.

Emphasising innovations in the irrigation field, the Prime Minister underlined the government’s focus on ‘per drop, more crop’. He said there are many possibilities for the corporate world in this too. He also mentioned the transformation that will be brought about by the Ken- Betwa link Pariyojana in the Bundelkhand region. He also reiterated the need to quickly complete the pending irrigation projects.

The Prime Minister stressed that artificial intelligence is going to completely change the trend related to agriculture and farming in the 21st century. The increasing use of drones in farming is part of this change. “Drone technology will be available on a scale only when we promote agri-startups. In the last three to four years, more than 700 agri startups have been created in the country”, he added.

He said that the government has been trying to increase the scope of processed food and ensure international standards of quality. 

The Prime Minister emphasised the management of agri-residue (parali). “For this, some new measures have been taken in this budget, due to which carbon emission will be reduced and farmers will also get income,” he said. He also asked to explore ways of using agri-waste for packaging.

The Prime Minister also touched upon the potential in the field of ethanol where the government is moving ahead with a goal of 20 per cent blending. The blending has reached near 8 per cent compared to 1-2 per cent in 2014, he informed.

The webinar was attended by Union Minister for Agriculture and Welfare Narendra Singh Tomar, Minister for Consumer Affairs, Food and Public Distribution, Textile, Commerce & Industry, Piyush Goyal, Minister for Fisheries, Animal Husbandry and Dairying, Parshottam Rupala, Minister for Food Processing Industries, Pashupati Kumar Paras, Minister of State for Agriculture, Kailash Chaudhary, Minister of State for Cooperation BL Verma, Minister of State for Information and Broadcasting, L Murugan and other ministers, Vice Chairman of NITI Aayog, Prof. Rajiv Kumar and Secretaries of concerned Departments, KVKs, ICAR Institutes, ATMA and farmers of the country.

 The webinar had an open discussion on five breakout sessions namely Natural Farming and its outreach, Emerging High-Tech and Digital Agri Ecosystem, Bringing Back Glory of Millets; Moving Towards Aatmanirbharta in Edible Oil, Sahkarita Se Samridhi, Financing Investment In Value Chain Infrastructure in Agriculture & Allied Sector with Stakeholders of respective fields.
