Procurement of Pulses and Oilseeds by NAFED is likely to drop by more than a third in the kharif 2018 season from the year-ago period.

The decline in procurement comes after two consecutive kharif seasons in which it surged and reached a critical mass, compared with very small quantities earlier.

Just about 10 lakh tonnes or 3% of the summer crop output of 314 lakh tonnes were procured by the national-level procurer NAFED as on January 3 and it may end up buying 16 lakh tonnes (5%) or thereabouts before the season ends.

NAFED managing director attributed the expected fall in procurement of Oilseeds and Pulses during kharif 2018 to a rise in market (mandi) prices.
