Spices Board Annual Report 2006-07

The overall fob unit value realization of the spice exports during the
year has increased significantly to Rs.95.67 per kg from Rs.75 per kg in
2005-06.

The export of pepper, which continued to suffer in the recent years,


recovered during the year and increased to 28,750 tonnes from 17,363
tonnes during the previous year. The WTO compatible subsidy for domestic
transportation as well as freight subsidy helped Indian pepper to be
competitive in the international markets.

Vanilla exports from India have shown a continuous growth i.e. from
25 tonnes in 2002-03 to 125 tonnes in 2006-07. Significantly, India is largely
exporting organic vanilla.

Value added products account for an impressive share of 59 per cent in


total spices export earnings. Besides, export of value added spices has also
increased by 38 per cent in terms of value in 2006-07 (Rs.2,093 crores)
compared to 2005-06 (Rs.1,512 crores).

Spices Board Annual Report 2006-07

² The Produce Cess Laws (Abolition) Act, 2006 (No.46 of 2006) dated 25.9.2006 – An Act to
repeal the Agricultural Produce Cess Act, 1940 and the Produce Cess Act, 1966 (Extraordinary
Part II – Section 1, Notification No.53 dated 26.9.2006).

The Quality Evaluation Laboratory of the Spices Board had analyzed 39,518 samples for
various parameters including pesticide residue, aflatoxin, illegal dyes such as Sudan I-IV,
Rhodamine, Para red etc., as compared to 35,046 samples analyzed in the previous year. The
laboratory standardized the test method for the estimation of more illegal dyes such as Para Red,
Sudan Red 7 B, Sudan Orange G, Rhodamine B and Butter Yellow by LCMS/MS method.

The targets in respect of various development programmes for the year 2006-07 were achieved,
which included production and supply of quality planting material of cardamom (small and large),
vanilla, herbal spices (rosemary, thyme) replanting of senile and uneconomic gardens, irrigation
and land development, construction of drying yards, supply of polythene sheets/bamboo mats for
hygienic drying of spices. In order to augment supply of quality planting material for the large
scale new planting of large cardamom in North Eastern States, the tissue culture production unit
of the Spices Board was engaged in production and supply of tissue culture large cardamom
plantlets.

The research activities of Indian Cardamom Research Institute continued during the period
under report. Two new high yielding varieties of cardamom viz., ICRI-5 and ICRI-6 having a yield
potential of over two tonnes per hectare evolved by ICRI were released. High production technology
(HPT) plots at ICRI farms were established to demonstrate the hi-tech agriculture in cardamom
with respect to varieties, irrigation, pest & disease management.

The emphasis on organic production of spices continued during the year. During 2006-07,
assistance had been provided to six NGOs/Groups and 16 individual farmers covering an area of
2,955 hectares benefiting 2,688 farmers. The Board had also supported organic production of
spices in states where it was not a major sector and assisted production of organic inputs like
vermi compost.

In North Eastern States, Board’s focus was on development of organic cultivation of large
cardamom, black pepper, turmeric and ginger. Apart from area expansion, setting up of processing
units were also included in the schemes for North Eastern States. Action had been initiated for
supporting two companies viz., M/s.Coinya Farm Produce Company & M/s.Karbi Farmers
Producer Company in the North Eastern States by equity participation of Rs. 1 crore each through
North Eastern Development Finance Corporation Ltd (NEDFI). The training programmes for
growers, processors and exporters were continued, apart from extension work and transfer of
technical know how to spice farmers.

4. EXPORT ORIENTED PRODUCTION

Spices Board is responsible for the overall development of cardamom and vanilla.
For improving production and productivity of cardamom, both small and large, Board
has formulated and implemented various developmental programmes. The Board also
supports programmes aimed at better post harvest practices. The developmental
activities are carried out through its regional offices, zonal offices and field units.
Spices Board maintains five departmental nurseries in the major cardamom growing
areas to cater to the needs of cardamom growers. Spices Board also encourages farmers
to adopt organic farming.
The major programmes implemented by the Board during 2006-07 are given below:
Small cardamom
Small cardamom is grown mainly in the Western Ghats of Kerala, Karnataka and
Tamil Nadu. The total area under cardamom during 2006-07 was 73,228 hectares
with an estimated production of 11,320 tonnes. Cardamom requires humid and
moderately cool climate, filtered light obtained from tree canopy, humus rich soil,
well-distributed rainfall and protection from heavy wind. Majority of the cardamom
holdings belong to the small and marginal category. In order to improve production,
productivity and post harvest practices, the following programmes were implemented.
i) Extension Advisory Service
The scheme envisages provision of technical guidance/support to growers through
regular field visits, farmers meetings, group discussions and seminars. Preparation
and distribution of technical literature on identified spices also constitute part
of the activity.
During 2006-07, 13,016 field visits were conducted and 1,237 farmers meetings
and group discussions were organised under the scheme. The expenditure on
salary, traveling allowance, office contingencies etc. of staff working in the
development department was met under the scheme. The expenditure during
2006-07 was Rs.475.18 lakhs.
ii) Production and supply of quality planting materials
a) Department nursery
The seedlings produced in the five departmental nurseries are supplied to
growers on a no loss no profit basis. During the year, the Board produced
1.94 lakh cardamom seedlings/suckers, 1.14 lakh pepper rooted cuttings
and 2.17 lakh vanilla rooted cuttings for supply during 2006 planting season.

iv) Irrigation and land development scheme


a) Western Ghat development programme in Kerala
The programme aims at providing water resources in cardamom plantations by
constructing water storage devices like farm ponds and wells. Installation of
irrigation equipments, soil & water conservation works and afforestation
programmes are also supported. The subsidy offered is 50 per cent of the cost of
construction of the water storage devices for small growers owning upto four
hectares and 25 per cent for growers owning between four to eight hectares
subject to a maximum of Rs.16,000/- per individual beneficiary. The cost of
irrigation equipments and soil and water conservation works are subsidised at
25 per cent of cost based on NABARD norms.
The programme was envisaged to be implemented by the Spices Board with
financial support of the Western Ghat Development Authority, Government of
Kerala. But as the share from the State Government has not been provided to the
Board, the beneficiaries were given only Board’s share as subsidy.
During 2006-07, a total of 503 water storage devices were constructed and 154
irrigation equipments installed and soil conservation work carried out in 24
hectares. A total of 709 hectares was brought under irrigation and land
development with a financial involvement of Rs.40.47 lakh as Board’s share
benefiting 709 growers.
b) Western Ghat development programme in Karnataka
This programme is implemented by the Board with the financial support of
Government of Karnataka under Western Ghat Development Programme. The
components of the programme include developing water sources for irrigation and
installation of irrigation equipments, soil conservation and afforestation. The
programme provides financial support to farmers by way of subsidy ranging from
25-50 per cent of the cost of above components on unit costs approved by NABARD.
During 2006-07, 112 water storage devices were constructed, 121 irrigation
equipments installed and an area of 386 hectares covered under irrigation
benefiting 240 growers. The total expenditure under the programme including
share of WGDP was Rs.23.23 lakh, out of which Board’s share was Rs.8.94 lakh.

Spices Board Annual Report 2006-07

Large cardamom
Large cardamom is mainly grown in the sub Himalayan tracts of Sikkim and
Darjeeling district of West Bengal. The total area under large cardamom during 2006-
07 was 30,039 with an estimated production of 5,185 tonnes. Lack of technical know-
how, non-availability of quality planting materials, presence of senile, old and
uneconomic plants and primitive curing methods are major problems affecting large
cardamom. Keeping these problems in view, the following programmes have been
implemented during 2006-07.
i) Extension advisory scheme
The Board disseminated scientific know-how to growers through regular field
visits, group meetings, campaigns, discussions etc.
During 2006-07, 4,194 field visits were conducted and 145 group meetings/
campaigns/ discussions were held under the scheme. An expenditure of Rs.128.71
lakhs was incurred under the scheme.
ii) Certified nursery scheme
In order to make available quality planting materials to the growers, Board
supports raising of nurseries in farmers’ field by offering a subsidy of Rs.10,000/
- per nursery having a production target of 10,000 suckers towards 25 per cent
of the cost of production.
During the season 8.97 lakh cardamom suckers were produced from the 80
certified nurseries opened during the previous season in growers field.
Production of suckers is in progress in the 80 certified nurseries opened during
the current season with a production target of 8.00 lakh seedlings. An amount
of Rs.5.00 lakh and Rs.4.00 lakh has been released towards first and second
instalment subsidy respectively.
A total expenditure of Rs. 9.00 lakh was incurred under the scheme during
2006-07.
iii) Replanting scheme
The scheme is intended to encourage the growers to take up replantation of old,
senile and uneconomic gardens. A subsidy of Rs.6,000/- per hectare is offered
to the growers being 21 per cent of the cost of replanting and maintenance
during gestation period.
During 2006-07, an area of 620.50 hectares was brought under replantation
benefiting 881 growers. The total expenditure under the scheme was Rs.39.14
lakhs.
iv) Low cost driers
The large cardamom growers traditionally cure their cardamom in the locally
fabricated bhatties. This does not ensure proper drying and ideal colour in the

Spices Board Annual Report 2006-07

cured cardamom. The Board had introduced and evaluated a number of curing
methods using different fuels and has selected a system, which gives best quality.
In order to popularize this method, Board is providing subsidy @ Rs.5,000/- for
200 kg capacity and Rs.9,000/- for 400 kg capacity driers respectively.
During 2006-07, 36 numbers of 200 kg capacity and 51 numbers of 400 kg capacity
modified Bhatties were set up benefiting 87 growers at an amount of Rs.4.69
lakhs towards subsidy.
v) Rain water harvesting
Irrigation during summer months is very much essential in cardamom plantations
for getting a higher yield. A cheap method of harvesting rainwater for irrigation
purpose in the cardamom plantations is using excavated storage tanks lined with
UV resistant polythene tarpaulin also called silpauline. This method of harvesting
rain water for irrigation purpose is becoming popular among the cardamom growers
of South India because of its low cost and convenience. The Spices Board is
popularizing this method for irrigating cardamom plantations in the states of
Kerala, Karnataka and Tamil Nadu.
It is estimated that a storage tank of 200 cubic meter capacity (eg. 16m x 5m x
2.5m lined with Silpauline) can store about two lakh liters of rain water, which is
sufficient to provide 10 – 12 rounds of irrigation in a cardamom plantation of 0.8
hectare. The cost of such a device is estimated to be around Rs.20,000/-
(Rs.15,000/- for excavation work and Rs.5,000/- for polythene sheets). Subsidy @
33.33 per cent of the actual cost, limited to Rs.6,666/- is allowed for the
construction of one 200 cubic meter capacity tank to small and marginal growers
of cardamom.
During 2006-07 this programme was implemented for large cardamom on trial
basis as done in the case of small cardamom in the States of Kerala, Tamil Nadu
and Karnataka.
During 2006-07, 24 rain water harvesting devices were constructed for large
cardamom benefiting 24 growers. The total subsidy paid under the scheme was
Rs.0.55 lakh.
Post harvest improvement of spices
i) Scheme for construction of drying yards for drying spices
This programme aims at construction of concrete/cement drying yards in the
farmers' field for drying spices under hygienic condition. The estimated cost of
construction is Rs.500/- per square meter. A subsidy of Rs.125/- per square
meter is provided towards 25 per cent of the cost of construction for general
category of growers. Scheduled caste and tribes are offered higher subsidy of
Rs.250/- and Rs.450/- per square meter towards 50 per cent and 90 per cent of
the cost of construction respectively.

Spices Board Annual Report 2006-07

Training programme for quality improvement of spices


The Board is regularly conducting quality improvement training programmes to
farmers, officials of State Agriculture/Horticulture Department, traders, members of
NGOs for educating them on scientific methods of pre/post harvest and storage
operations and updated quality requirements for major spices.
During 2006-07, training programmes were conducted benefiting 37,680 spices
growers in 717 centres and 1,903 officials of State Agriculture/Horticulture Department
in 40 centres, 171 traders in eight centres and 906 representatives of NGOs in 17
centres. Twenty-six Regional seminars benefiting 3,669 participants were also
conducted.
Development of exotic and high value spices
i) Vanilla development
In order to bring more area under vanilla planting, the Board is assisting the
growers by providing quality planting materials at subsidized rate. For this purpose,
during 2004-05, Board had entered into agreement with Kudumbasree units and
four NGOs in Kerala having past record of meritorious social service for production
and supply of vanilla rooted cuttings in polybags to Spices Board at reasonable
rate.
During 2006-07 planting season, 13,900 numbers of vanilla rooted cuttings were
procured from the production units of NGOs and distributed to the needy growers
and an area of 10 hectares were brought under cultivation. An amount of Rs.9.74
lakhs has been spent under this programme.
ii) Vanilla curing units
Curing of vanilla is a specialised operation. Board supports the growers in setting
up of processing units to cure the vanilla beans by offering a subsidy of Rs.2,500/
- per unit (curing boxes with accessories) towards 25 per cent cost of the processing
aids. During 2006-07, 23 such units were set up benefiting 23 growers paying a
subsidy of Rs.0.57 lakh.
iii) Development of herbal spices
Rosemary, thyme, parsley and oregano are important herbal spices having
tremendous export potential.
The agro-climatic conditions prevailing in certain areas in Tamil Nadu, North
Eastern States and other hilly regions are suitable for cultivation of herbal spices.
Board supports the herbal spice growers by providing Rs.20,000/- per hectare as
subsidy towards 40 per cent cost of planting material. The programme is
implemented with the assistance of State Governments/NGOs.

Spices Board Annual Report 2006-07

Organic farming/IPM programmes


Internationally, the niche market for organically produced spices is growing at a
fast rate. Early entry into this segment will improve the exportability and demand for
Indian spices. In addition, availability of organically grown spices will help the country
to withstand competition from low cost countries in South East Asia. The major
bottlenecks in promoting organic farming are non-availability of organic farm inputs
and high cost of organic certification of farms and processing units.
Chilli is one of the major items in our export basket of spices. Indiscriminate use
of pesticides has resulted in pesticide residues and detention of Indian chilli
consignments in Australia, Spain and some other countries. If preventive measures
are not taken, there could be serious set back to chilli exports from India.
For implementation during X plan period programmes like organic farm certification
scheme, support for vermi-compost units, promoting organic cultivation for paprika like
chilli, promoting organic spices and promotion of integrated pest management in chilli
are proposed. The following component under the programme has been implemented
during 2006-07.
i) Organic farm certification assistance
The scheme aims to help growers/processors of spices in acquiring organic
certification, which is a pre-requisite for marketing organic spices. During IX Plan
period nine projects were taken up under UNDP for organic certification
During X Plan Board assisted group of farmers, NGOs and Farmers Co-operative
Societies/ Associations in acquiring certification for their farms/processing units by
meeting 50 per cent cost of the certification, subject to a maximum of Rs.0.75 lakh.
Individual farmers and processors were eligible for 50 per cent of the cost of certification
subject to a maximum of Rs.25,000/- per certification.
During 2006-07, assistance to the tune of Rs.3.77 lakh has been provided for six
NGOs/Groups and 16 individual farmers covering an area of 2,955 hectares benefiting
2,688 farmers. Three processors were also supported.
ii) Support for vermi-compost units
There is need to produce organic inputs in the farm itself to maintain soil fertility
and to support organic production. In order to enable the growers to produce organic
farm inputs, particularly vermi-compost, Rs.1,000/- is offered as grant-in-aid to growers
to set up a unit with one tonne output of vermi-compost.
During 2006-07, 8763 vermi-compost units were set up incurring an amount of
Rs.88.36 lakhs benefiting 4,696 growers.

iii) Promoting organic cultivation of paprika like chilli for export


Chappata chilli grown in Warrangal district and nearby areas in Andhra Pradesh
and Bydagi chilli grown in Dharwad and nearby districts in Karnataka are having
high colour value and features similar to Paprika.
Board assists growers in taking up organic cultivation of paprika like chilli by
giving a subsidy of 12.5 per cent cost of production subject to a maximum of
Rs.3,750/- per hectares disbursed in two instalments of Rs.2,000/- at the time of
transplanting and Rs.1,750/- at the time of first round harvest. Board will identify
compact areas and the scheme is implemented through reputed NGOs paying
them retention fee @ Rs.500/- per hectare. Organic certification of the farms will
also be arranged by the Board in association with the NGOs participating in the
programme.
During 2006-07, one thousand hectares have been brought under cultivation
releasing subsidy to the tune of Rs.42.50 lakhs benefiting 945 farmers.
iv) Promoting production of organic spices
Spices like ginger, turmeric, chilli and kokam are suitable for organic cultivation
in Maharashtra, Orissa, Chattisgarh, Uttaranjal, Bihar, etc. There is large scope
for promoting organic farming for cumin, fennel, fenugreek, coriander, dill etc. in
the states of Gujarat and Rajasthan.
Board supports organic cultivation by providing a subsidy of 12.5 per cent of the
cost subject to a maximum of Rs.3,750/- per hectare as part of the production
cost. The subsidies will be disbursed in two instalments of Rs.2,000/- and
Rs.1,750/-. The first instalment will be given immediately after sowing/planting
and second instalment will be given immediately after harvest in the case of
annual crops and during the second years in the case of perennial crops. The
programme is implemented with the help of NGOs by paying them a retention fee
of Rs.500/- per hectare.
During 2006-07 organic production has been taken up in 550.69 hectares paying
Rs.23.28 lakhs as subsidy benefiting 740 farmers.
v) Promotion of integrated pest management (IPM) in chilli
Consignments of Indian chilli were detained in the recent past due to reported
presence of pesticides. The presence of pesticides has caused serious trade
disruptions. Therefore, it is necessary to popularise integrated pest management
in chilli.
During IX Plan period, the Board under an UNDP Project implemented a pilot
project to promote IPM in chilli through farmers’ field school, demonstration plots
and supply of IPM kits to the growers of chilli in two villages in Andhra Pradesh
with the help of NGOs. The project was successful in demonstrating the benefits
of IPM to the growers.

Spices Board Annual Report 2006-07

During X Plan period, Board is replicating the same in other villages in Guntur,
Warrangal, Karim Nagar, Prakasam and Kurnool districts of Andhra Pradesh by supplying
IPM kits containing pheromone traps, bio agents like trichoderma, trichogramma, neem
pesticides and seed worms of vermi compost units at an estimated cost of Rs.1,500/-
per hectare. This comprises 50 per cent of the cost of the IPM package. The scheme is
implemented with the assistance of Non Governmental Organisations. Support will be
given to the NGOs in maintaining extension staff to run the farmers field school and
field visits to provide technical guidance.
During 2006-07 the programme has been implemented in 107 villages in Warangal,
Guntur, Prakasham, Karim Nagar and Kurnool districts of Andhra Pradesh covering an
area of 7,500 hectares spending an amount of Rs.149.96 lakhs benefiting 7,269 growers.
Development of spices in North Eastern states
Chilli, ginger and turmeric are extensively cultivated in the North Eastern states.
Some of the indigenous varieties viz., ‘China’,’Nadia’, and ‘Thingpuri’ in ginger,`Lakadong’
in turmeric and ‘birds eye’ in chilli are considered rich in oil, curcumin content and
capsaicin content respectively. The agro – climatic conditions prevailing in NE states
are suitable for the cultivation of pepper and large cardamom and these crops can be
profitably grown in these regions to create exportable surplus. There is great scope in
promoting production of organic spices in these states by popularizing organic farming
practices among the growers so that sufficient quantity of organic spices can be made
available for exports.
The major constraints noticed in the development of spices in North Eastern
region are lack of an organised marketing system and lack of know-how on cultivation
and post harvest practices. Spices Board therefore, implements an integrated scheme
for the development of export-oriented spices in North Eastern states with the following
components:
i) Large cardamom development – New planting
Large Cardamom cultivation is presently concentrated in Sikkim and North West
Bengal. The agro-climatic conditions prevailing in other North Eastern states are
suitable for cultivation of large cardamom.
The scheme envisages to extent large cardamom cultivation in these areas by
providing Rs.17,500/- per hectare as subsidy towards cost of planting material
and maintenance during gestation period.
During 2006-07, an area of 350.50 hectares has been planted with large cardamom
seedlings raised in the certified nurseries opened during the previous season.
An amount of Rs.58.37 lakhs has been paid as subsidy benefiting 266 farmers.
ii) Setting up of curing houses for large cardamom (Modified Bhatti)
It is expected that production from the area under large cardamom cultivation
taken up during the previous years will come to bearing from 2006-07 onwards.
Large Cardamom requires special type of curing chambers for drying. Modified
bhatties used for curing cardamom in Sikkim was replicated in North Eastern
states on a trial basis during the season. The estimated cost of one drier is
Rs.15,000/- and Rs.25,000/- for 200 kg and 400 kg capacities respectively the
subsidy offered was Rs.5000/- for 200 kg capacity drier and Rs.9,000/- for 400 kg
capacity drier.

Spices Board Annual Report 2006-07

During 2006-07, twelve such driers with a capacity of 200 kg were set up bearing
full cost by the Board as a special programme being implemented in North Eastern
region. A drier of 400 kg capacity was also set up with financial support of
Rs.9,000/- as subsidy. Total financial involvement under the programme was
Rs.1.80 lakhs.
iii) Production of organic pepper
The scheme is implemented in the States of Assam, Arunachal Pradesh and
Tripura by providing 33 per cent subsidy subject to a maximum of Rs.12,500/- per
hectare in two instalments of Rs.10,000/- and Rs.2,500/- in the form of planting
materials (Rs.8,000/-) and organic inputs like trichoderma, copper sulphate
(bordeaux mixture) to small farmers. Organic inputs will be multiplied with the
assistance of Non Governmental agencies and supplied to the growers. The
required planting materials will be produced through rapid multiplication units
with the help of Governmental/Non-Governmental agencies with full technical
guidance from the Spices Board.
During 2006-07, an extent of 231 hectares have been brought under cultivation
paying an amount of Rs.21.02 lakh towards subsidy to 587 beneficiaries.
iv) Setting up of vermi compost units
Vermi compost is an important organic input to maintain and enhance the soil
fertility. It is necessary to produce organic inputs in the farm itself to avoid
contamination with chemicals. In order to enable the growers to produce organic
inputs, Rs.1,250/- will be provided as grant-in-aid per unit towards 25 per cent of
the cost of setting up of one unit. The growers under this scheme are selected
from those who are involved in the organic production of spices.
During 2006-07, a total of 1,126 vermi compost units were set up by providing
Rs.13.85 lakhs as subsidy to 706 beneficiaries.
v) Organic cultivation of ginger
Ginger varieties like Nadia and China are having higher oil content and hence
suited for exports. During X Plan period, to promote production of these varieties
organically in North Eastern States Rs.12,500/- per hectare will be provided as
subsidy towards 50 per cent cost of the planting materials. The programme will
be implemented with the assistance of Governmental/Non – Governmental
agencies.
During 2006-07, an area of 422.15 hectares were brought under cultivation by
providing Rs.54.09 lakhs as subsidy to 658 growers.
vi) Organic cultivation of Lakadong turmeric
Lakadong turmeric is having high curcumin content (5.5 per cent) and hence
suitable for extraction of colour. This variety is highly location specific and is
very much preferred by the exporters for extraction of the colour. Hence organic
production of Lakadong turmeric in Meghalaya and other North Eastern States
was supported during X Plan period. Availability of quality planting materials is a

New programmes
i) Rain water harvesting devices in cardamom and vanilla plantations
Irrigation during summer months is very much essential in cardamom and vanilla
plantations for getting a higher yield. A cheap method of harvesting rain water
for irrigation purpose in the cardamom and vanilla plantations is using excavated
storage tanks lined with UV resistant polythene tarpaulin also called Silpauline.
This method of harvesting rain water for irrigation purpose is becoming popular
among the cardamom and vanilla growers because of its low cost and convenience.
The Spices Board is popularizing this method for irrigating cardamom and vanilla
plantations in the States of Kerala, Karnataka and Tamil Nadu.
It is estimated that a storage tank of 200 cubic meter capacity (eg. 16 meter x 5
meter x 2.5 meter lined with Silpauline) can store about two lakh liters of rain
water, which is sufficient to provide 10 – 12 rounds of irrigation in a cardamom
plantation of 0.8 hectare. The cost of such a device is estimated to be around
Rs.20,000/- (Rs.15,000/- for excavation work and Rs.5,000/- for polythene sheets).
Subsidy @ 33.33 per cent of the actual cost, limited to Rs.6,666/- is allowed for
the construction of one 200 cubic meter capacity tank to registered small and
marginal growers of cardamom and vanilla.
During 2006-07, a total of 69 devices covering an area of 124 hectares and 136
devices covering an area of 84 hectares were constructed for cardamom and
vanilla respectively. The total subsidy paid under the scheme was Rs.8.51 lakhs.

Spices Board Annual Report 2006-07

ii) Scheme for improved cardamom curing devices for small cardamom
Cardamom is dried in traditional curing houses using firewood as fuel. Sun
drying is not popular due to the loss of green colour during the process. As the
productivity/production is registering an upward trend year after year, the firewood
requirement is also increasing. As the wind fallen trees are not enough to meet
the growing demand of firewood, the growers are forced to meet their requirement
of firewood, either from the market or from resorting to cutting trees leading to
degradation of forest cover. Moreover, wood is required for the construction of
new curing houses especially for racks to spread cardamom and to provide false
ceiling in the curing houses to preserve the heat.
Few innovative growers have started installing cardamom curing systems using
alternate fuels, viz. Diesel, LP Gas, which gives their produce better colour and
cost effective drying. These driers are eco-friendly, labour saving and easy to
operate. The harvested green cardamom can be put in to the drying chamber of
these new curing systems after washing, instead of spreading it on the trays as
is practiced in the conventional drying. The drying time is reduced from 28 – 36
hours to 20 hours in these driers.
The objective of the scheme is to popularise the above cardamom drying systems
using LPG/ Diesel as fuel among the small growers of Kerala, Karnataka and
Tamil Nadu by providing 33.33 per cent of the actual cost of drier as subsidy
subject to a maximum of Rs.1.00 lakh. Non-subsidy portion will be met by the
growers from their own funds or through institutional finance. Spices Board has
prepared a list of approved suppliers and upper ceiling cost for driers of various
capacities. The driers are to be purchased from approved suppliers.
During 2006-07, Board had assisted installation of 68 improved cardamom curing
devices with a financial outlay of Rs.30.90 lakh benefiting 69 growers.
iii) Setting up of chilli poly house driers
During the visit of the Hon’ble Minister of State for Commerce on 7th June 2006
and in the meeting convened at Spices Board, it was decided to set up 100 numbers
of chilli poly house driers in Guntur of Andhra Pradesh during the year, 2006-07.
The objective of the proposal is for drying chilli in chilli poly house driers under
hygienic condition to avoid bleaching effect of the sun that leads to the
discolouration of the pods and thereby reducing the percentage of TALU in chilli
dried in such driers for assuring availability of quality chilli suitable for export.
By adopting this method, drying period can be reduced to five to six days from 15
to 18 days required in conventional sun drying in yards and drying can be taken

5. EXPORT ORIENTED RESEARCH

The Research Department with its head quarters at Myladumpara (Kerala) and
its regional stations at Saklespur (Karnataka), Thadiankudisai (Tamil Nadu) and Gangtok
(Sikkim) were focusing on the location specific problems of small and large cardamom.
The export concern for small cardamom was the high use of pesticides. Low productivity
due to “katte” viral disease was the major issue in Karnataka. The unprecedented
disease outbreak in large cardamom hampered its production in Sikkim. The above
issues were the targets of research intervention.
Germplasm conservatory for cardamom
The primary mandate of the Indian Cardamom Research Institute (ICRI) is to
conserve the genetic diversity of cardamom. The Institute maintains the largest gene
pool in cardamom with over 800 accessions.
i) New varieties in cardamom
Two new high yielding varieties of cardamom viz., ICRI-5 and ICRI-6 having an
yield potential of over two tonnes per hectare, evolved by ICRI were released by
the Kerala State Variety Release Committee for cultivation in the cardamom
tract of Kerala. ICRI-5 is the first man made hybrid in cardamom, whereas ICRI-
6 is a selection from germplasm. One-lakh suckers would be ready for distribution
during the next planting season.
ii) Cardamom variety for Wayanad area
A sizeable area in Wayanad (Kerala) is under cardamom cultivation. But the
productivity of cardamom in Wayanad is very low due to the non-availability of
high yielding clones suited to the agroclimatic situations of that area. Preliminary
results obtained from the Location Specific Trial conducted at Wayanad indicated
the suitability of MHC-18, MCC-73 and MCC-21 for Wayanad.
iii) High production technology for cardamom
Established High Production Technology (HPT) plots at ICRI farms to demonstrate
high tech agriculture in cardamom with respect to varieties, management,
irrigation, pest and disease management etc.
iv) Integrated pest management in spices
A comprehensive research programme funded by the Ministry of Chemicals and
Fertilizers to popularize neem as an alternative pesticide was initiated by ICRI to
cover crops like cardamom (small & large), black pepper, chilli, ginger and turmeric.
Two local isolates of entomopathogenic nematodes (EPN) significantly reduced
cardamom root grubs than chemical insecticides under field condition.

v) Bio-agents for disease control


Bio-agents such as trichoderma, pseudomonas and bacillus subtilis were mass
multiplied and supplied to farmers for disease control. A total of 2,619 kg of solid
and 389 liters of liquid trichoderma were produced. The total quantity of liquid
pseudomonas production was 1,266 liters. One hundred and ninety eight liters of
bacillus subtilis was also produced and supplied to farmers.
vi) Production of tissue culture plantlets of large cardamom
The Biotech Production Unit (BPU) has continued its programme of initial bulking
up of planting materials. It has produced 92,000 plantlets of elite large cardamom
varieties for planting in North Eastern Region.
vii) PGPR trial on cardamom
An observational trial to test the bio-efficacy of Greenstim on cardamom was
initiated at ICRI, Myladumpara. Greenstim is an organic product, which acts as
an osmotic regulator in the plant cells that helps to increase drought tolerance
and to overcome water stress situations.
viii) Integrated nutrient management in cardamom
The role of biofertilizers in cardamom production was studied. Application of
biofertilizers like azospirillum and phosphobacterium can not only increase the
yield of cardamom but also reduce the application of chemical fertilizers by 50 per
cent.
ix) Causal organisms identified
The fungal pathogens responsible for the newly reported serious disease of large
cardamom were identified as Colletotrichum sp. and Fusarium sp. Control
measures to combat the disease problem are being worked out.
x) Farm advisory services
As a part of the soil advisory service to farmers, 1,128 samples received from
various cardamom plantations were analyzed for nutrient status and fertilizer
recommendations given.
xi) Characterization of landraces
Biochemical characterization of a few popular landraces viz., Panikulanagara-1,
Panikulangara-2, Njallani, Vali Green Bold, PNS Vaigai, Vander cardamom and
Palakkudi was carried out. Among the landraces, Njallani is found to contain
higher amount of chlorophyll-a, chlorophyll-b and total chlorophyll content
imparting better green colour to the capsules.
xii) Inter institutional collaboration
The DBT project on black pepper was implemented in Karnataka, Tamil Nadu,

produced and processed in the country. It has got facilities to analyse various physical,
chemical, and microbial parameters including pesticide residues, aflatoxin, heavy metals
and contaminants/adulterant artificial dyes in spices and spice products. The laboratory
follows internationally accepted test methods for various analysis.
The laboratory is certified under ISO 9001:2000 Quality Management System and
ISO 14001 Environmental Management System in 1997 and 1999 respectively by the
British Standards Institution, the U.K. The laboratory is also accredited under ISO/
IEC: 17025 by the National Accreditation Board for Testing & Calibration Laboratories
(NABL), Department of Science & Technology, Government of India since September
2004. All the activities under the ISO 9001:2000 system established in the laboratory
are fully computerized.
The laboratory is equipped with the state of the art technology to undertake the
analysis as per the requirements of importing countries. To validate the analytical
methods adopted, the laboratory regularly participates in check sample/validation
programmes organized by international/national agencies, viz: Food Analysis Proficiency
Assessment Scheme (FAPAS) and Food Examination Proficiency Assessment Scheme
(FEPAS) conducted by Central Science Laboratory (CSL), U.K., American Spice Trade
Association (ASTA) and International Pepper Community (IPC), Jakarta. In addition to
the above, the laboratory conducts check sample programmes for major parameters
(like Aflatoxin, Sudan I - IV and Pesticide residues) with various laboratories in major
importing countries and laboratories in India.
Analytical services
As part of updating the analytical facilities the standardization of test methods
for Triazophos, Profenfos and lprobenfos using Japanese method is completed. The
laboratory also standardized the test methods for the estimation of more illegal dyes
such as Para Red, Sudan Red 7 B, Sudan Orange G, Rhodamine B and Butter Yellow
by LCMS/MS Method.
The laboratory offers analytical service to the exporters, traders, farmers and
research organizations in spices and spice products. During the period, the laboratory
analysed 39,518 samples for various parameters including pesticide residues, aflatoxin,
illegal dyes such as Sudan I – IV, Rhodamine Para Red in chilli and chilli products for
a total analytical charges of Rs.4,54,52,012.

Spices Board Annual Report 2006-07

9. TRADE INFORMATION SERVICE

Trade Information Service (TIS) division is responsible for the collection,


compilation, analysis and dissemination of statistics relating to Exports, Imports, Area,
Production and Domestic and International prices of spices. The month wise export
estimates have been prepared from the Daily List of Exports (DLE) released by the
major Customs offices of Cochin, Mumbai, J.N.P.T., Chennai as well as from the
information received from the Regional Offices of the Board. The monthly imports of
spices into India have been estimated using the Daily List of Imports (DLI) received
from the major customs like Cochin, Mumbai and Chennai and other land ports.
Domestic and international prices received from various agencies like India Pepper
and Spice Trade Association, Agriculture Produce Marketing Committees, Merchants
Associations, International Trade Centre, Geneva, etc are being compiled and
disseminated through the Spices Market weekly as well as through the Board’s website.

Since the Board is responsible for the production development of cardamom and
vanilla, the area, production and productivity of these spices are estimated by TIS
division based on the field sample study conducted through the field set up. Area and
production of other spices are collected from the State Economics and Statistics/
Agriculture/Horticulture departments and compiled. Information on area, production,
prices and exports are being furnished to various users in the industry on request.

Spices Board Annual Report 2006-07

As stated earlier, the spice exports have shown creditable performance by achieving
remarkable growth especially in value terms during the year as compared to previous
year.
A brief review on the export performance of individual spices in 2006-07 in
comparison with 2005-06 is given below.
² Pepper
In 2006-07, a quantity of 28,750 tonnes of pepper valued Rs.306.20 crores has
been exported as against the export of 17,363 tonnes valued Rs.150.95 crores in 2005-
06. The FOB unit value has also increased from Rs.86.94 to Rs.106.50 per kg during
the year.
USA is the single largest market for pepper and has imported 13,886 tonnes of
pepper from India in 2006-07 as compared to 6,596 tonnes in 2005-06. Other major
markets are the UK, Germany, Italy, Canada and Australia. Exports of pepper to the
UK remained at around 2,000 tonnes in both the years and similarly exports to Germany
at 1,400 tonnes. Exports to Australia have increased from 582 tonnes in 2005-06 to
1,000 tonnes in 2006-07 and to Italy has increased from 798 tonnes to 1,251 tonnes
during the same period.
In 2006-07, USA has imported 67,217 tonnes of pepper against 68,681 tonnes in
2005-06. The source wise imports show that their imports from other major producers
like Vietnam and Indonesia have come down during the year. Black pepper imports
from Indonesia have come down from 14,144 tonnes to 9,628 tonnes and that of Vietnam
from 18,693 tonnes to 16,365 tonnes. This decline has been compensated mostly from
the Indian supply.
The WTO compatible subsidy for domestic transportation as well as freight helped
Indian pepper to be competitive in the International markets. In addition to this the
decline in the international supply situation has also helped India to export more
quantities in 2006-07. World pepper production has come down from 3,14,270 tonnes
in 2005 to 2,69,900 tonnes in 2006. The estimated production for 2007 will be still less
at 2,66,000 tonnes.
² Small cardamom
During 2006-07, India exported 650 tonnes of small cardamom valued Rs.22.36
crores as against 863 tonnes valued Rs.26.82 crores in 2005-06. The unit value
realization has increased from Rs.310.86 per Kg in 2005-06 to Rs.344 per Kg in 2006-
07. Saudi Arabia remained the major market contributing nearly 65 per cent of the
total exports. In 2006-07 we have exported 407 tonnes of cardamom to Saudi Arabia
compared to 511 tonnes in 2005-06. However a significant decline has been noted in
the export to Japan. In 2006-07, only 36 tonnes have been exported to Japan as against
225 tonnes in 2005-06.

Spices Board Annual Report 2006-07

² Large cardamom
In 2006-07, India has exported 1,500 tonnes of large cardamom valued Rs.16.95
crores as against 1,046 tonnes valued Rs.11.55 crores in 2005-06. The FOB unit value
has increased from Rs.110 per Kg to Rs.113 per Kg during the period.
In spite of a decline in production from 5185 tonnes in 2005-06 to 4303 tonnes
during 2006-07, exports have increased by 50 per cent over that of last year. It was
reported that production in Nepal and Bhutan was also less during the year. Pakistan
has been the major market and they imported 1,167 tonnes during the year compared
to 760 tonnes in 2005-06.
² Chilli
Chilli exports from India during 2006-07 were 1,48,500 tonnes valued Rs.807.75
crores as against 1,13,174 tonnes valued Rs. 403.01 crores in 2005-06. Unit value
realization has increased from Rs.36 per kg to Rs.54 per Kg in the same period. In
other words, in spite of increase in price, we could increase our export by 31 per cent
in volume.
It is reported that the production in China was less than previous year. This has
resulted a short supply in the international market, which in turn made chilli much
hotter in the international market. The export figures show that China has even imported
around 900 tonnes of chilli from India in 2006-07. Countries like Malaysia, Bangladesh
and Indonesia have imported more quantity of chilli from India, there by pushing up
the demand and consequently the prices. Malaysia has imported 43,625 tonnes of
chilli during the year compared to 26,804 tonnes in 2005-06. Bangladesh imported
28,425 tonnes compared to 671 tonnes in 2005-06. Other major buyers like Sri Lanka
has imported 21,822 tonnes, USA 13,058 tonnes and UAE 11,819 tonnes of chilli in
2006-07.
² Ginger
During 2006-07, a total of 7,500 tonnes of ginger valued Rs.39.75 crores had been
exported as against 9,411 tonnes valued Rs.42.96 crores in the previous year. Saudi
Arabia was the major market for dry ginger and exports to that country has increased
to 931 tonnes in 2006-07 from 627 tonnes in 2005-06. Exports to Y.A.R had increased
to 481 tonnes from 208 tonnes and that of UK to 554 tonnes from 433 tonnes. Exports
of dry ginger to Spain has also increased to 393 tonnes from 158 tonnes during the
same period.
However, fresh ginger export to Bangladesh had significantly come down during
the year. Export of fresh ginger to Bangladesh has declined from 5,341 tonnes to 2,405
tonnes in the same period.
² Turmeric
Export of turmeric in 2006-07 has increased to 51,500 tonnes valued Rs.164.80
crores as against 46,405 tonnes valued Rs.152.86 crores in 2005-06. Turmeric exports
to Iran has significantly increased during the year, i.e., from 1,447 tonnes in 2005-06
to 6,095 tonnes. Export to Egypt has also increased from 1,065 tonnes to 2,057 tonnes
in the same period. Exports to most other major markets remained almost the same
level as that of previous year.

Spices Board Annual Report 2006-07

² Coriander
During 2006-07, India exported 20,500 tonnes of coriander valued Rs.74.62 crores
as against 23,756 tonnes valued Rs.67.71 crores in 2005-06. Even though there is an
overall decline in coriander exports, countries like UAE, Singapore, UK and Nepal have
imported more quantities of coriander from India in 2006-07. The major decline has
been noted in the export of coriander to Malaysia, i.e. from 7,530 tonnes in 2005-06 to
5,899 tonnes in 2006-07 and to Pakistan from 3426 tonnes to 1,264 tonnes
² Cumin
During 2006-07, cumin weighing 26000 tonnes of cumin valued Rs.201.50 crores
had been exported as against 12,879 tonnes valued Rs.98.19 crores in 2005-06. The
FOB unit value realization has slightly increased from Rs.76 per Kg to Rs.78 per Kg.
Exports of cumin to Vietnam had substantially increased from 215 tonnes in
2005-06 to 4,112 tonnes in 2006-07. Exports of cumin to USA, UK, UAE and Bangladesh
had also shown significant increase during the year. USA has imported 3,948 tonnes
of cumin during the year as compared to 1,875 tonnes in 2005-06. The import by UAE
has increased from 561 tonnes to 1,768 tonnes and that of Bangladesh from 117
tonnes to 841 tonnes in the same period.
The production in some of the major producing countries like Iran and Turkey
was less than normal in 2006 and in Syria the crop was near normal. This tight supply
situation had demanded more cumin from India, the world’s largest producer.
² Celery
During 2006-07, 3,550 tonnes of celery valued Rs.13.20 crores had been exported
as against 4,165 tonnes valued Rs.15.01 crores in 2005-06. USA is the major market
for celery accounting for 65-70 per cent of our total celery exports. In 2006-07 export to
USA has declined to 2,200 tonnes from 3,166 tonnes in 2005-06.
² Fennel
In 2006-07, India exported 3,575 tonnes of fennel valued Rs.23.80 crores as
against 5,725 tonnes valued Rs.27.82 crores in 2005-06. The FOB unit price of fennel
had increased from Rs.49 per Kg to Rs.67 per Kg in 2006-07. Major markets for fennel
are Pakistan, USA, UK and UAE. Export to all these countries have come down during
the year. Pakistan has imported only 561 tonnes of fennel in 2006-07 compared to
1,495 tonnes in 2005-06. Other major decline has been noted in the case of UAE
where it has declined from 592 tonnes to 394 tonnes.
² Fenugreek
During 2006-07, 8,500 tonnes of fenugreek valued Rs.26.98 crores has been
exported as against 15,525 tonnes valued Rs.34.03 crores in 2005-06. Japan, Y.A.R,
South Africa and Sri Lanka are the major markets for fenugreek. Export of fenugreek
to Japan has come down from 1,409 tonnes to 1,103 tonnes, and to Y.A.R. it has
declined from 2,581 tonnes to 1,013 tonnes. The decline in domestic production has
resulted in the increase in domestic price, which made our fenugreek uncompetitive
in the international market. The average domestic price of fenugreek has increased
from Rs.17 per Kg to Rs.27 per Kg in 2006-07.

² Other seed spices


Seed spices like mustard, aniseed, dill, poppy etc. are coming under this head.
The exports of these spices together declined during the year. As compared to the
