TRADING AVENUES AVAILABLE IN AGRI-COMMODITY

India is predominantly an agrarian economy, ranking second in farm production in the world. The contribution of agriculture to the GVA has decreased from 18.2% in 2014-15 to 16.5% in 2019-20.

While keeping pace with the increasing population, the growing agricultural production over the past several decades has thrown up major challenges in marketing, as well as supply, storage, and distribution. With highly fragmented markets and volatile commodity prices, it is a challenge to ensure a ‘fair’ and ‘remunerative’ price for the Indian farmer. Keeping these in mind, the government introduced several reforms. In all this, the strengthening of existing institutions in spot and derivative trade has become crucial as commodity markets do influence the lives of millions of stakeholders in the country’s diverse and large commodity ecosystem.
