`Indian drought won't impact grain exports'
Cristina Coslet is Country Monitor, Far East Asia at the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations. She speaks to Down To Earth on how the prevailing drought in India would affect its grain exports. Coslet says a reduced forecast of rice and wheat production by India this year will not necessarily have a significant impact on the world market. This is because the Indian government holds sizeable stocks of food grains which render restrictions on exports unlikely.
