CONTRACT FARMING:  One option for creating a role for the Private Sector in Agri development and extension ? CONTRACT FARMING WHAT IS CONTRACT FARMING ?:  ESSENTIALLY The farmer is contracted to plant the contractor’s crop on his land Harvest and deliver to the contractor, a quantum of produce, based upon anticipated yield and contracted acreage This could be at a pre agreed price Towards these ends, the contractor can supply the farmer with selected inputs IS THIS REALLY ANTHING NEW ? WHAT IS CONTRACT FARMING ? THE GOI HAS RUN AND CONTINUES TO RUN THE LARGEST CONTRACT FARMING MODEL:  THE GOI HAS RUN AND CONTINUES TO RUN THE LARGEST CONTRACT FARMING MODEL The “Green Revolution” Improved varieties and Hybrids Subsidised fertilizers made available Guaranteed procurement by State agencies Pre defined minimum support price Extension services provided by ICAR and Agri Universities Results Production boomed Farmer incomes increased Food security assured BUT WHAT ELSE DID IT DO ?:  BUT WHAT ELSE DID IT DO ? Farmers free to sell at prices higher than minimum support price. Farmers get used to a one-sided contract Essential Commodities Act became a means of ensuring Government procurement Private trade mechanism marginalised In absence of market mechanism MSP ceases to be a safety net and assumes the role of reference price This contract has an open ended tenure and no termination clause WHAT ELSE DID IT DO ? :  WHAT ELSE DID IT DO ? Mono-culture, over-fertilization and excessive watering led to soil degradation Singular focus on supported crops discouraged diversification Subsidised exports to liquidate stocks create further distance between the international market and domestic reality. (Contd..) Contract farming in this context, in order to succeed, has to go well beyond the simple definition Slide6:  CONTRACT FARMING IN PUNJAB Pepsi, Punjab Agro Industries Corporation (PAIC) and Punjab Agricultural University (PAU) Partnership in Profile Slide7:  BUILDING BLOCKS FOR A SUSTAINABLE CONTRACT FARMING PROGRAMME Land preparation & planting, crop monitoring during growing period harvesting & procurement, transportation logistics prompt farmer payment system The extension services team - selection and training Farmer education program Field trials at farmer fields - multi-locational & crop timing Evaluation of promising varieties and hybrids Multi locational trials and short-listing - selection Blueprint for agricultural practices after adapting to local conditions, to suit intellectual & financial means of the farmer Evaluation of farmer economics model Demonstration farming Commercialisaation Technology Transfer R & D Activities Slide8:  WHAT WAS THE IMPACT ? Tomato yields increased threefold, from 16 - 52 MT / hectare. Chilli & potato yields improvements were equally dramatic Production of tomato in the state of Punjab, went up to 200,000 MT, from 28,000. Technology spread to non Pepsi growers Fresh market prices for tomato dropped, with increased availability. However farm incomes increased. Chilli yields increased from 2.5 MT to 9 MT per acre Move to contract farming of other crops - Groundnut, Basmati & non Basmati paddy KEY LEARNINGS FROM PEPSICO’S EXPERIENCE : PRE OPERATIVE:  KEY LEARNINGS FROM PEPSICO’S EXPERIENCE : PRE OPERATIVE You need a technical team, with an applied & commercial focus Research the site & location well Land holding pattern Farmer resource availability Soil suitability and water availability Track record for crop in question Conduct trials - intensive R&D efforts Establish that trial results are practical & commercially implementable Poll grower attitudes to your crop Offer better alternatives to the farmer compared to existing crops Assess availability & sustainability of other resources and infrastructure Input availability Transportation Banking etc.. KEY LEARNINGS FROM PEPSICO’S EXPERIENCE : THE NURSERY:  KEY LEARNINGS FROM PEPSICO’S EXPERIENCE : THE NURSERY Low cost tunnel technology works. Review any requirement for glass houses Land preparation is critical. Siting nursery operations on elevated ground Elevated beds - create more options Mechanization of operations - higher productivity and reduced wastages - seeders, bed makers, mini sprinklers etc.. Operations should at least initially, be either subsidised, or at best self sustaining. Move to profit centre later KEY LEARNINGS FROM PEPSICO’S EXPERIENCE : THE FIELD:  KEY LEARNINGS FROM PEPSICO’S EXPERIENCE : THE FIELD Extension services team should be locally drawn and user friendly, available at the farmers’ call Never offer your growers any commercially, untested technology Break the hard pan in clay, or alluvial soils; encourage deeper rooting Ensure availability of adequate and appropriate inputs Agricultural implements offered gratis to growers - an investment that yields long term benefits. Data recording on continuous basis improves efficiency Develop an algorithm for heat units in local conditions - control harvesting and fruit intake The development of a commercial support system, is critical - timely farmer payments are a priority Slide12:  THE ADVANTAGES OF CONTRACT FARMING Farmer gets exposure to world class agro technology Planting materials/healthy disease free nursery Crop monitoring technical advice free at his doorstep Agricultural implements The farmer obtains an assured up front price & market outlet for his produce Focus shifts from prices to returns per acre - driven by productivity increases The private sector gets requisite quality material regularly at predetermined prices Promotes long term planning and investments PARTNERSHIPS FIRST Slide13:  CONTRACT FARMING VERSUS A PRICE SUPPORT MECHANISM Contract Farming Planting Material Supplies Technology Transfer Assured Price Assured Quantity Free Equipment Partnership Approach Builds Commitment Long Term Price Support Usually None None Minimum Guaranteed No Assured Quantity No Free Equipment Usually Adversarial Builds Mistrust Short Term Slide14:  THE PROBLEMS THAT BESET CONTRACT FARMING Small size of farmer landholdings. Need to contract with a larger number. No mechanism to discourage default. No legal recourse when faced with large scale contravention of contracts. Lack of a comprehensive crop insurance scheme to protect against natural calamities. Slide15:  A LOT CAN BE DONE DESPITE THE ABSENCE OF A LEGAL FRAMEWORK Maintain a proper database on farmers. Incentives, rewards & public recognition. Publicising the names of defaulters in the locality of default. Farmer encouraged to set own targets, assist with draft of QC standards etc. Clearly allocate quantities for the fresh market. Repeat defaulters are not considered again Maintains a high motivation level. The social stigma usually suffices as a disincentive to default. Promotes ‘‘ownership’’ of the business, builds loyalty over the long term. The difference becomes apparent very quickly SOME POLICIES TO PROMOTE CONTRACT FARMING:  SOME POLICIES TO PROMOTE CONTRACT FARMING Slide17:  GOVT. FISCAL SUPPORT Single tier regulatory authority for contract farming at the district level - A quasi judicial system for contract enforcement Make purchase interference by a third party in a contract farming program, a cognizable offence For a Registered Contract Farming Programme Abolish all fees, taxes cess, duties, levies on procurement effected Exempt taxes and duties on import of agri equipments Eliminate red tape In import of varieties / hybrids Introduce insurance policies to provide comprehensive coverage of the crops including loss of profit to the farmers Make it obligatory for Agricultural Students to work on contract farming programmes as a part of their curriculum Focus Agriculture Universities towards developing crop and region specific agendas
