International Spice Commodities Update – Cardamom

Posted on

Cardamom continued its positive trend due to good demand from domestic and overseas buyers. According to media information, Spices Board of India has undertaken replantation and rejuvenation schemes for raising cardamom production and yield in Kerala and the northeastern states.

Chairman of Spices Board, A. Jayathilak said under the scheme the board has covered 8807 hectares area in small cardamom and 4000 hectares in large cardamom. Added, in 2011-12, output of cardamom is expected to rise by 20 percent to 12750 tonnes due to  favorable weather. On the other hand, traders are of the opinion that if the current weather conditions prevail the  production may decline compared to previous year.
