Consultative Meeting on Enhancing Exports of Sorghum & Sorghum Products From India OBJECTIVE • To develop the strategy and proposal on PPP mode to enhance the export marketability of sorghum and sorghum products from India. EXPECTED OUTCOME • Mapping the challenges and opportunities of all stakeholders on improving export of sorghum (Food, Feed and Industrial products). • Draft a strategic plan to enhance export of sorghum and sorghum products from India through PPP mode.
Key Stakeholders NABARD
Sorghum Industry Sorghum has a variety of uses including food for human consumption, feed grain for livestock and industrial applications such as ethanol production. In the world 50% of the sorghum produced is for livestock and 50% consumed by humans/other applications Food usage on the rise thanks to the gluten-free benefits of sorghum Most human consumption occurs in low-income countries, while high-income countries use sorghum as a component in livestock feed or to produce ethanol Sorghum is the leading cereal grain in Africa. Currently grown in over 66 countries. The area planted to sorghum worldwide has increased by 66 percent over the past 50 years, while yield has increased by 244 percent. Among the other cereals, feed use of sorghum is anticipated to increase by 10. 5 percent (2. 7 million tonnes), with much of the rise concentrated in China, where it is seen growing by 1. 8 million tonnes (43 percent) from the previous season(FAO) Total trade of sorghum (2014/15) is projected at 10 million tonnes, some 53 percent (3. 5 million tonnes) higher than last season (FAO)

Sorghum in India Traditional marketing chain for sorghum grain in India
Opportunities / Drivers: India ü Increased demand for sorghum grains in the international trade for alternative uses like feed, starch and fuel. ü The health-, the environment- and animal welfare-conscious consumers are increasing and sorghum is being preferred ü Increasing demand for gluten-free products ü Well established research centers on sorghum and increased application of new technologies for the development of new cultivars, Products and Technologies. ü Conducive policy frame work and institutional supports for promotion of exports.

Opportunities / Drivers: Global Supply Sorghum has huge potential acreage increase mainly in Argentina/US if prices continues supported as today. If China/Argentina sign agreement on Sorghum local prices will jump and farmers would increase acreage. US also shows some increase of acreages because of higher local prices. Australia acreage increase is limited. Demand Chinese demand changed the Supply &Demand dramatically and will drive the market for 3 reasons: 1) Huge difference between sorghum import price vs local crop 2) Sorghum is NO-GMO stem (corn MIR 162 issue). 3) China has NO IMPORT QUOTA on sorghum. ü Due to high prices others destinations switched sorghum demand to others products such as corn (Mexico/Colombia/Japan). ü Question is if Chinese demand increase will compensate the drop on usage from others destinations. ü Ethanol demand is also increasing in US and also China is considering to import more sorghum for Ethanol. ü Don’t see any impact for countries that use Sorghum for food as they are self-sufficient (African Countries).
Potential Sorghum Export Countries Cereal Preparations Ø Present level of exports -$ 471 mn Ø Projected exports in the next 3 years- $ 800 mn Ø Potential markets -USA, Bangladesh, UK, Nepal, UAE, Angola Grain China , Japan , Mexico, Chile, Africa, European Union and others Requisites for Enhancement of Sorghum Exports • Educate farmers and producers about markets, products and improved production technologies • Storing the grain to suit export demand • Identify up-scalable products which has international demand. • Identify niche markets for specified products • Develop value added products based on domestic & International market surveys • Develop and use low cost and appropriate processing technologies • Entrepreneurship development is another key component for enhancement of demand.

SEDP bring down costs of production and improve quality of products to make domestically produced sorghum competitive Drivers of Costs Drivers of Quality SEDP Solutions Challenges Unreliable Infrastructure Input Costs Technology and Farming Techniques Low Public Sector Investment Decision making and planning becomes highly uncertain when investments are put at risk by unstable or rapidly changing policies High input costs are significant barriers to the competitiveness of the sorghum industry A low technology base and level of mechanization puts sorghum farmers at a disadvantage when competing against high quality domestic importers Insufficient certification and food safety standards, in addition to a lack of consistent best practice techniques, has led to a sub -optimal quality of sorghum Access to adequate and reliable infrastructure, access to sufficient and affordable finance Guaranteed access to quality inputs for sorghum producers and processors. These may include cost of credit, imported equipment, appropriate seeds etc Adequate know-how and skill set of workforce. Access to improved seeds and inputs facilitates mechanization Existence of enabling policies for domestic market development. High level of investment from public sector. Effective value chain linkages
