NAYPYIDAW-MYANMAR (Commodity Online): Import of pulses and seeds by India from Myanmar is likely to be hit by poor rains say traders in the region. Deficiency in rain fall directly caused to fall the production of pulses and seeds in Myanmar.Production of pigeon pea (toor) would be reduced by more than 20%.

Meanwhile, the prices of pulses are expected to rise during export season due to sufficient demand from India and lower production.

The production of sesame, toor (pigeon pea) and matpe (black gram) and others have significantly fallen due to lack of rain in upper Myanmar. On the other hand, severe flood has covered the rice growing areas of lower Myanmar.

Magway, Mandalay and Sagaing are the major sesame growing areas in Upper Myanmar. However, all of these regions have suffered from below average rainfall this monsoon. In some areas only 20% of cultivable land has been planted.

The prices of key beans and pulses matpe (black gram) and toor (pigeon pea) jumped to $700 a ton in August, up from $500 in June.

Annually, India consumes more than 20 million tons of beans and pulses. Farmers in India could only produce 17 million tons, even with favourable weather. As a result, India needs to import at least 3 million tons a year from Canada, Myanmar and other beans and pulses producing countries.
