Direction of Exports of Commercial Agricultural Commodities
AbstractAgricultural commodities like tea, coffee, spices, oilseeds, cotton and cashew can be grouped under cash crops. They are traditional export items, which aggregate to 50% of total agricultural exports by India. These items are ready for consumption after some value addition. They are used as raw material in food and other industries. The commodities can be ranked high in hierarchy of demands after food items like wheat and rice. The economic status of the consumer plays a significant role in their demand. The paper analyses the exports of tea, coffee, spices, cotton, oilseeds and cashew by India, measures the export growth in the aftermath of economic reforms, calculates the volatility of export and explores the relationship between exports, imports and production.
