Jul 18: Clearly, the government’s failure to bring a comprehensive set of reforms to the fertilizer sector is a missed opportunity.
8The system is also highly prone to the misuse of subsidy, it is claimed. According to the Economic Survey (2105-16), 24 per cent of the fertilizer subsidy is appropriated by inefficient manufacturers, 41 percent gets pilfered on way to the farmers and 24 per cent cornered by large farmers. Only 11 percent of the benefit actually goes to the poor farmers (those with landholding

Rice records a negative deviation of 23.5% up to 12 July

Jul 17: 8Rice, which is one of the most important Kharif crops has recorded a negative cropping deviation of 23.5% up to 12 July compared with the normal of the corresponding week.
8It is also important to note here that the government announced an increase in the minimum support prices (MSP) in the range of 50% over cost (on most Kharif crops) to 85% (highest increase for bajra).
8The slow progress of monsoon and sowing pattern of Kharif crops could have been a reason for increasing the MSP of the crops. However, a lot depends on the quantum of procurement of these Kharif crops by the government.

Yara: Key decision makers

Jul 17: International fertilizer giant Yara has reshuffled its businesses in an internal restructuring
8The Babrala plant has been reassigned under the "production" instead of the now defunct crop nutrition category
8There are now three strategic division within the multinational -- production, new business and sales and marketing -- all of which directly overseen by the CEO
8The key decision maker at the multinational in India is country manager, Sanjiv Kanwar. He is an old and trusted hand at Yara. He joined Hydro Agri ( fertilizer arm of Norsk Hydro and spun off as Yara in 2004 ). He is a specialty fertilizer business development expert and worked hard to include new generation products in the Fertiliser Control Order.
8The final authority for strategic review and decision making in Yara is its 47 year-old CEO Svein Tore Holsether, who is passionate about pushing sustainable agriculture.
8The reassignment from crop nutrition to production is just a change in nomenclature, insists company insiders, even though there would be some who would speculate that the change meant that Yara looks at Babrala and its pan-India network more as a production center now than as a doorway to push its widening array of technology-driven products into the country. "You speculate too much, it is just an internal change for better review," a company insider said.
