The Sta­tis­ti­cal Sec­tion of the Book con­tains a rich com­mod­ity data­base that pro­vides in­for­ma­tion for the last 10 years to­gether, with ex­pec­ta­tions for the cur­rent and next year.

With a wealth of data re­lated to the com­mod­ity sec­tor and the views of com­pe­tent au­thors - an ex­cel­lent mix of pol­icy mak­ers, mar­ket prac­ti­tion­ers, aca­demi­cians and ex­perts - this book is sure to con­tinue to be of spe­cial in­ter­est and rel­e­vance to all pol­icy mak­ers, re­searchers, an­a­lysts and com­mod­ity & fi­nance pro­fes­sion­als.

space in­clud­ing com­mod­ity mar­ket par­tic­i­pants, traders, dis­trib­u­tors, pro­ces­sors, im­porters and ex­porters, and all those en­gaged along the en­tire agri-value chain. The book serves the pur­pose of pro­vid­ing in­sights into the vast com­mod­ity space to the gen­eral reader.

This edi­tion is di­vided into five sec­tions. Part A con­tains an­a­lyt­i­cal re­view of pro­duc­tion, de­mand and price trends. Part B con­tains three Papers on com­mod­ity in­fla­tion and mone­tary pol­icy. C sec­tion cov­ers de­vel­op­ment and trends in agri­cul­ture and com­mod­ity mar­kets. Part D of the book deals with risk mit­i­ga­tion mea­sures us­ing weather pa­ram­e­ters. Part E cap­tures the data and pro­vides sta­tis­ti­cal de­tails on sev­eral as­pects.

In­dia is not a per­fect mar­ket for com­modi­ties be­cause of sev­eral bar­ri­ers and there is a need for in­te­gra­tion with global mar­ket. In­dia is mi­cro­cosm of sev­eral coun­tries and it calls for such agri­cul­ture poli­cies that meet the re­quire­ments of dif­fer­ent seg­ments. It is an eye opener and helps in tak­ing cor­rec­tive mea­sures.

The way com­modi­ties be­have, it is dif­fi­cult to take a per­fect or per­ma­nent de­ci­sion at cer­tain point of time. Here the book pro­vides very use­ful guide­lines and di­rec­tions.

NCML is a lead­ing player in ware­hous­ing and col­lat­eral man­age­ment. Wide ex­pe­ri­ence and ex­per­tise of the pub­lisher have made a solid base to gather a rich com­mod­ity data­base that pro­vides in­for­ma­tion for the last 10 years to­gether, with ex­pec­ta­tions for the cur­rent and next year.

Au­thors' views are in­de­pen­dent. Au­thors have an­a­lysed the poli­cies and is­sues in depth.Govern­ment's schemes have been eval­u­ated. For ex­am­ple, while ap­pre­ci­at­ing Na­tional Agri­cul­tural Mar­ket(NAM) ini­tia­tive of the govern­ment, the ex­pert ar­gues that com­plex­ity of do­mes­tic mar­ket is so large that a sin­gle plat­form may not be use­ful for all re­gion, so we need mul­ti­ple ini­tia­tives and plat­forms for the mar­ket­ing pur­pose.
