  • Guar Supply Chain

  • Issues and options in Supply Chain

    • Pre-production

    • Post- production

  • Policy Related Issues

  • Strategies to integrate supply chain and boost guar gum export


Need for Integrated Supply Network for Agri-Produce

High delivery costs, caused primarily by a fragmented supply chain, inefficient logistics, together with poor standards are the common features of agricultural marketing system in the developing countries. In the present era of globalization & privatization

  • Competition no longer between firms but between supply chains

  • Efficiencies of scale and scope the “buzzword”

  • Leads to shifts in the risk profile

  • Benefit to farmers as upgrading as chain actor, adding value through vertical integration and developing partnerships/ ownerships, feedback to farmers to ‘grow what sells’


An integrated supply chain provides access to knowledge, technology, finance, markets: leading to shared benefits

Post-Production: Issues and Options


  • Pre-Production: Issues and Options

  • Agricultural Produce Market Regulation Act amended to include provisions for

  • Contract farming

  • Direct marketing

  • e-trading

  • Private markets


Price Risk: Management

  • Commodity futures as a platform for minimising price risk

  • Guar spot price volatility decreased post-futures (Sen Committee Report, 2008)

  • Awareness is required

  • FIG/ Farmer Producer Companies can help farmers

The Road Ahead…

  • Develop a R&D centre as the centre of excellence for Guar:

  • Collection and dissemination of information,

  • Promoting usage of Guar and its derivatives,

  • Development of processing technology according to changing market demand and food safety concerns

  • Development of value added products.

  • Have R&D facilities and pilot plant/ machinery for trial production of value added derivatives of Guar.

  • Have facilities and authority for quality certification.

  • Capacity building of small and medium enterprises in guar processing on the lines of growing food safety concerns.


Further actions

  • Industry Association:

  • How you can support farmers to stabilize yield, achieve higher productivity, minimize post-production costs, and sustainability.

  • Access to processing technology: industry specific products

  • Research – Industry collaboration for higher and sustainable productivity and for processing
