Advance estimate of Guar seed production from Rajasthan in year 2015-2016.
Rajasthan Govt has released estimated data of crop production in the state during 2015-2016. As per these data this year there was 2'223'474 MT guar seed production in Rajasthan, which was cultivated on 4'786'781 Hectare Area. Average productivity of guar seed from Rajasthan was 465 Kg/ Hectare. This year ( 2015-2016 ) there was lesser production than year 2014-2015. There is pressure of crude prices on guar seed rates in local market. If this pressure from crude prices will remain continue then farmer may shift to other profitable alternate of gaur seed. This alternate might be other pulses crop like Moong or Moth specially in rain-fed area. In irrigated area farmer may shift to other alternate like groundnut, sugarcane or Cotton. Guar is still a profitable crop for farmers but high prices of other alternate crop may force farmers to rethink about guar.
