GUAR Production in rajasthan

 Rajasthan Production of guarseed in Rajasthan, the main producing area is expected to be nearly 70 lakh bags this year. In Shri Ganganagar and Hanumangarh districts, total production of guar is expected to be nearly 23-25 lakh bags based on the latest sowing figures from traders. If rains occur there in the coming days, production may increase. In Bikaner, around 3 lakh bags production is expected. Though sowing has increased in Churu district, but in Nagaur, Pali and Sirohi, sowing level has fallen as farmers are taking interest in production of castor seed and Moong instead of guarseed in the wake of better price realizations of these products. Sowing is reportedly same in Jodhpur while sowing has increased in Barhmer and Jaisalmer. Moreover, reports indicate no change in sowing levels in Alwar, Bhartpur, Jaipur, Sikar, Ajmer, Chittorgarh and Udaipur districts. Though production is expected at ~70 lakh bags in Rajasthan, but sowing work started late owing to late arrival of monsoon. Again, more rains are needed in the growing areas. First spell of rains was satisfactory but another spell of rains is needed. If rains do not occur in next few days, colour of the crop would start to fade. News related to colour deterioration is already there from some places. If this turns out to be true, size of guar plant would reduced, which may cause the production to fall to ~50 lakh bags from the current estimates of 70 lakh bags.
