Badami quality has a significant importance as it is traded in Futures exchange. In term of production and consumption figures, it acquires the maximum importance. Coriander is also produced in AP, MP, Gujarat, Tamil Nadu, Bengal and UP.

Rajasthan

Kota is the main producing region in Rajasthan for coriander. During 2003-04, record production of nearly 90-95 lakh bags (each equal to 40 kg) was observed. This fell to around 30-35 lakh bags in 2007-08. Good export demand during this lean production year pulled up the prices to very high levels. Sowing time of coriander is between mid November to end-December. As per traders, sowing area is likely to increase this year as farmers have got good returns for their produce. The peak time for arrival is March but it starts in small phase by February. However, arrivals continue all over the year gradually.

Madhya Pradesh

MP is the second largest producer for coriander. Around 40 lakh bags were produced in 2003-04 while during 2007-08, production reduced to nearly 15 lakh bags. Sowing area is also expected to rise here this year. Cultivation and arrival time is similar to that in Rajasthan. Here, good quality is produced which is used in preparation of Namkeen Daal. Kumbhraj quality is famous for its fragrance all across the world.

Gujarat

Saurashtra is the main producing area in this state. Though coriander production remained low here during past few years but during 2007-08, around 6-7 lakh bags coriander was produced – as per reports. Export figure remained at record levels this year due to good demand from NRIs.

Andhra Pradesh

Coriander is cultivated in Karappa district in this state. Nearly 7-8 lakh bags have been produced here during past few years but reluctance of farmers towards this crop led to a drastic fall in production to less than 1 lakh bags in 2007-08. Farmers preferred to cultivate Sunflower instead of coriander during last season. Sowing takes place from November to December while harvesting time starts from February and lasts till March. However, farmers are likely to take more interest for its cultivation this year as they have got better price for their produce this year.

Tamil Nadu

Coriander is produced here in Kajanur area. Sowing and harvesting time is similar to other states. During 2007- 08, around 1 lakh bag was produced here which is lower than previous years’ 2 lakh bags production. Most of the produce is consumed locally.

West Bengal, Bihar and UP

Total production of coriander remained around 5 lakh bags in the three states during 2007-08, which is considered very high. It is to be noted that this production figure had been nearly 1 lakh bags during the last few years. Sowing area is also expected to increase in these states. In UP, around 50000 bags are produced in areas near Kanpur.

Current year would be remembered for record export figures for coriander. During 2003-04, record production was witnessed, while in 2007-08, production remained low. Most important thing is that during 2008-09, production is likely to be good in the wake of better sowing figure that is expected in the markets. The overall production would be dependent on the weather aspects also.
