Morning round-up, Thursday July 18


* India’s Meteorological Department said on Thursday that monsoon rains were 20% below average ending on Wednesday.


The news has raised fears about the country’s summer-sown crop output.

Around 55% of India’s arable land is dependent on rains.


Areas growing soybeans and cotton in the country received around 68% less rainfall than normal.




* Japan’s agriculture ministry said that it did not receive any offers for feed-quality wheat or barley in a tender that closed on Wednesday.


The ministry was seeking 120,000 tonnes of feed wheat and 200,000 tonnes of feed barley for delivery by December 25.




* Bulgaria’s Minister of Agriculture Desislava Taneva announced on Wednesday that the country is stepping up measures to prevent the spread of African swine fever (ASF).


According to Reuters, 30 cases of the disease have been reported in the country in July.


Some of the preventative measures include paying 150 levs ($86) per wild boar killed to reduce population density in 20km zones around ASF outbreaks, bettering traffic controls and border checks in these areas, disinfecting farms and restricting the sale of pork and processed pork products.




* China’s Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs reported another outbreak of ASF in the country’s Sichuan province.


The highly-contagious hog disease was found on a farm in Jiajiang county with 102 pigs, infecting and killing 21.
