A memorandum to the Ministry of Fisheries, Animal Husbandry & Dairying, pointed out that India’s 34.60 MMT annual maize production is insufficient to meet the requirements of the poultry industry as well as the nation’s food security

The All India Poultry Breeder Association (AIPBA) Delhi has written to the Ministry of Fisheries, Animal Husbandry & Dairying to allow duty-free maize imports to enable the poultry industry to meet its future requirements.

The current basic import duty on maize stands at 50 per cent.

Citing concerns over the rising maize consumption in ethanol production, the All India Poultry Breeder Association (AIPBA), in a memorandum to the Ministry of Fisheries, Animal Husbandry & Dairying, pointed out that India’s 34.60 MMT annual maize production is insufficient to meet the requirements of the poultry industry as well as nation’s food security.

“As per estimates of the Indian Institute of Millets Research, the Poultry and Livestock industry consumes more than 60 per cent of the country’s maize production. In this context, the government’s ambitious plan to generate half of the ethanol from maize by 2025-26 may have some serious implications for sectors like poultry and livestock. Diverting such a significant chunk of current maize production to ethanol could impact their access to essential feedstock, creating a severe demand-supply gap in the coming years,” said the memorandum submitted to the government by the All India Poultry Breeder Association under the chairmanship of Bahadur Ali who is also the Managing Director of IB Group.

Over the last decade, maize production growth has been at 4.5 per cent, while the poultry industry has experienced a growth of 8-9 per cent. This disparity highlights the anticipated maize shortage for the poultry industry, particularly in the wake of the government’s plan to promote maize for ethanol in a big way.

“Addressing the rising demand for maize in both livestock feed and other industries presents two options: importing maize or increasing domestic production. However, significant short-term increases in domestic output are deemed improbable. Therefore, importing maize from other countries emerges as the most viable solution to meet the immediate demand,” the association stated in its memorandum to the Ministry of Fisheries, Animal Husbandry & Dairying.

Ethanol’s growing thirst for maize has also pushed prices skyward, posing a major challenge for Indian poultry farmers. With maize prices hovering around Rs 22-23 per kg across India, poultry farmers are grappling with unsustainable costs. The burden is expected to intensify further by February 2024, which may adversely impact the poultry industry.

The opening of the hatchery contributes to realising the goals of Timor-Leste’s National Aquaculture Development Strategy (2012-2030), which includes increasing annual farmed fish production to 12,000 tons by 2030 and supporting an increase in annual fish consumption to 12 kg per year.

The fourth private genetically improved farmed tilapia (GIFT) hatchery has opened on the south coast of Timor-Leste, marking another step in the country’s aquaculture development.

The hatchery was inaugurated by Marcus da Cruz, Minister of Agriculture, Livestock, Fisheries, and Forestry and Philip Hewitt, New Zealand Ambassador to Timor-Leste.

“The Colocau GIFT hatchery is expected to produce more than five million GIFT monosex GIFT fingerlings per year, which will be supplied to local fish farmers in Manufahi and nearby municipalities,” said Hewitt at the event.

“This will have great advantages for the aquaculture sector, enabling fish farmers to produce more farmed tilapia, thereby making it easier for consumers to access fresh fish in the future. This will help combat malnutrition among children in Timor-Leste.”

The Colocau GIFT hatchery was established in partnership with the Same Construction business, the hatchery owner, as part of the Partnership for Aquaculture Development in Timor-Leste Phase 2 (PADTL2) project (2020-2024).

The project is funded by the New Zealand Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade and led by WorldFish in partnership with the Timor-Leste Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock, Forestry and Fisheries (MALFF).

The Timor-Leste Government is committed to scaling aquaculture to enhance the livelihoods nutrition and food security of rural households, explained Marcus da Cruz at the event.

The Colocau GIFT hatchery is the fourth of its kind to be set up by the PADTL2 project. The other hatcheries are spread across the country’s west, east and centre-Leohitu (Bobonaro municipality), Parlamento (Lautem municipality), and Hera (Dili municipality).

These efforts are critical to realising the goals of the National Aquaculture Development Strategy (2012-2030), including increasing annual farmed fish production to 12,000 tons by 2030 and supporting an increase in annual fish consumption to 12 kg per year.

Bangladesh imported meat from 14 countries, with India being the largest source

The India-Bangladesh Chamber of Commerce and Industry (IBCCI) has requested the government to allow buffalo meat import from India to meet the growing demand of the country, according to the local media.

Abdul Matlub Ahmad, IBCCI President has recently requested authorisation from the commerce ministry for the importation of frozen halal meat. In a letter, he stated that some members of the organisation are interested in importing the meat from India and have already applied for permission from the Directorate of Livestock under Section 23(33) of the Import Policy Order 2021-2024. Ahmad explained that the demand for meat products in Bangladesh has been rising steadily due to population growth and changing dietary preferences. He also noted that India has a reputable meat industry that adheres to international standards of halal food, hygiene, safety, and quality control. The chamber estimates that importing frozen halal boneless buffalo meat from India could result in a lower selling price of Tk 500-550 per kg compared to the current cost of local fresh meat at Tk 800-850 per kg. 

According to the Import Policy-2021-24 notification that was issued in April 2022 by the commerce ministry, prior approval has to be taken from the Department of Livestock for the import of meat including frozen buffalo (bovine) meat, said an earlier letter sent by the Indian High Commission in Dhaka. 

The country produced over 8.71 million tonnes of meat in the FY 2022-23 against an annual demand of nearly 7.6 million tonnes, according to the Department of Livestock Services (DLS).

According to a Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association (BGMEA) concept paper, meat import increased four times in five years – from US$ 0.72 million in FY 2013-14 to nearly US$ 2.5 million in FY 2017-18.

Bangladesh imported meat from 14 countries, with India being the largest source.

Other countries included Ethiopia, France, Korea, Thailand, China, the United Arab Emirates (UAE), the USA, Pakistan, Malaysia, Singapore and Indonesia.

ESG investors are expected to drive capital flows to help farmers overcome livelihood and other barriers to adopting environmentally friendly smart technologies

Stakeholders are establishing ethos to bolster environmental, social and governance (ESG) performance in the smart agriculture industry. Forward-looking players are enriching the lives of producers and consumers through sustainable innovation to minimise environmental footprint. State-of-the-art technologies, including precision farming, automation, sensors and cloud computing, have become the next big thing in the agriculture industry. ESG investors are expected to drive capital flows to help farmers overcome livelihood and other barriers to adopting environmentally friendly smart technologies.

Governing bodies and watchdogs have vouched for building resilience for people, agricultural food systems and sustainability to augment agricultural productivity and incomes. An unprecedented spike in the global population and shifting diets have spurred the demand for smart agriculture to manage cropland, forests and livestock.

A feature story on the World Bank website claimed that acute food insecurity in 2023 could overtake the food crisis witnessed in 2007-2008. With agriculture being prone to climate change, weather variability, soaring temperature and invasive crops have elicited challenges and opportunities for investors and other stakeholders. The World Bank infers that agriculture produces around 19–29 per cent of total greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.

ESG investors are expected to drive capital

A major move to encourage commercial yak farming in the northeast of India  

The Himalayan Yak has received approval as a food animal from the Food Safety and Standard Authority of India (FSSAI). Yak farming has not been accepted as profitable farming in India. Now yak milk and meat will be included in the traditional dairy and meat sectors. The approval will help to encourage commercial yak farming in the northeast of India.  

National Research Centre (NRC) on Yak in Arunachal Pradesh had submitted a proposal to FSSAI, to consider Yak as a food animal in 2021. Food Animals are those that are raised and used for food production. Himalayan Yak plays a multi-dimensional and socio-economic role in the northeastern region of India. In Arunachal Pradesh, more than 10,000 farmers are into commercial yak farming, and these farmers sell yak milk products, woollen clothing and meat, it is also used for transportation in remote locations. Churpi, ghee, paneer and churkum are traditional yak milk products that are an essential part of the cuisine in the districts of Arunachal Pradesh    

Yak milk is having nourishing values, it includes, 80 per cent of water, 8 per cent of fat, 5 per cent protein, 5 per cent lactose, and 12 per cent SNF.

The census conducted in 2019, according to it, India has around 58,000 yaks, compared to the data from 2012 declined by 25 per cent.

Improved production efficiency, commercial culture development, increased revenue and employment are all possible through contract farming as it provides credit, technology, inputs, information, extension services, and risk mitigation to farmers. In addition, the provision of an assured market through contract farming is seen as an extremely useful benefit. Let us now examine the impact of contract farming on the livestock sector.

In the 1960s, contract farming emerged in India’s seed production sector throughout states; by the 1990s, it had spread to other farm goods in places like Punjab and Haryana, where companies like Pepsi Foods were cultivating tomatoes, chilies, and potatoes under contract. Currently, private domestic and international enterprises for internal processing or export mostly dominate contract farming in India. The practice is ubiquitous across crops and livestock, states, and agencies (public, private, and multinational). The government of Arunachal Pradesh has recently extended an invitation to large corporations like Reliance, Adani, and Patanjali to begin contract farming and a buy-back policy in the state.

The farmers in our country have to contend with a number of issues, including the use of antiquated equipment and management techniques, weak negotiating positions with input suppliers and produce markets, a lack of infrastructure and market information, a dearth of management expertise, a subpar packaging of goods, and a shortage of funds to raise high-quality livestock.

Contract farming can be viewed as a way to entice the private sector to deploy some of its considerable resources to solve these issues. Improved production efficiency, commercial culture development, increased revenue and employment are all possible through contract farming  as it provides credit, technology, inputs, information, extension services, and risk mitigation to farmers. In addition, the provision of an assured market through contract farming is seen as an extremely useful benefit.

Uplifts small farmers

Small farmers who are highly vulnerable to risk can especially gain from contract farming since it allows them to buy milking animals, boost output, and ride the wave of market-driven expansion. Farmers’ revenues will increase to their full potential, and their exposure to production-related risks, transfer price risks, and output hazards will be minimised with the use of contracts.

Elaborating further on this concept of contract farming, Narendra Pasuparthy, Chief Farmer, CEO & Founder, Nandu’s said, “Although contract farming in India has been prevalent for several decades, a legal framework on farming agreements came into force only in 2020. In the livestock sector, this has paved the way for greater investments, creation of new markets, and better financial security for the farmers. At Nandu’s, we envisage a promising future for this collaborative approach. Since our inception in 2016, Nandu’s has been making conscious efforts to build a steady source of livelihood for the farmer community. Currently, we have 300 farmers who work exclusively with Nandu’s. Integration farming contracts ensure that our farmers are exposed to zero risk – despite the unpredictable market conditions and other factors affecting production efficiency.”
