India may import more wheat, says US trade body
NEW DELHI: India will need to import up to 1.5m tonnes more wheat in the year to April ’07 in order to bridge a shortfall in supplies and build the country’s stocks, a senior US industry official said on Tuesday.

Last Friday, the food ministry awarded a tender for 500,000 tonnes of wheat to Australian exporter AWB with the grain to be delivered to five southern ports between March and mid-May. But Mark Samson, vice-president for South Asia at US Wheat Associates, a trade body, said there were likely to be further purchases. “Over the next year, the production numbers indicate that an import of 1.5 to 2m tonnes may be needed to maintain a required buffer stock,” he said.

Mr Samson said New Delhi had projected wheat output at 73m tonnes in the current marketing year, but private trade officials have suggested the harvest could be about two million tonnes lower due to a sudden rise in temperatures in key wheat growing regions.
