Mr. Jitu Bheda, Chairman, India Pulses and Grains Association said, “We have received an overwhelming response to the past two seasons and are proud to announce the 3rd season of the The IPGA Knowledge Series with our very first webinar of 2022 on Rabi Outlook and Kharif Production 2022The panel will discuss several aspects of the Rabi and Kharif crops and overall pulses sector which will be extremely beneficial to the global audiences. We will present incredibly engaging and contextual content to all of our national and international stakeholders at all levels with such a terrific line-up of panellists.”

Mr. Bimal Kothari, Vice Chairman, India Pulses and Grains Association said, “Historically, there has always been a discrepancy between the Ministry of Agriculture and Farmers Welfare's sowing and production numbers and the numbers gathered by the trade. Our goal with this webinar is to present all available facts to the stakeholders. Stakeholders will need subject specialists for each pulse to offer their perspectives on carry-forward stocks, price outlook, estimated production, anticipated imports, and so on. We hope that the information provided by the expert panellists will assist trade partners in making well-informed decisions on how to plan their business activity. A lot of attention needs to be paid towards the Rabi and Kharif crops for the qualitative production as compared to quantitative production. Pulses too are witnessing a surge in demand as a protein rich food. We are also coming up with awareness programme on promoting pulse as a protein-rich food and have asked the government to distribute pulses through public distribution system.”
