MUMBAI (Commoditiescontrol) – Chickpea exports from Tanzania increased by a record 113 percent last year although the main market, India had imposed restrictions against pulses.

Chickpeas was the only one to have performed better among four major pulses cultivated in the Tanzania. The other three pulses with poor performance includes Rajma, Tur and Moong.

87,178 MT of Chana was exported in 2019, as compared to 44,895 MT in 2018. Despite the import restrictions, India took some share of Chickpea exports. Perhaps the main reason is that Tanzania specializes in production of desi rather than Kabuli Chickpea. Turkey and other countries reported an overproduction of kabuli Chickpea in 2019.

Export of Rajma was reported to be 1202 MT last year, well below 58 percent from 2,845 MT in the previous year. India was the top destination beating Pakistan, which was the main destination in 2018.

Moong export slumped 60 percent to 18,362 MT compared to 44,895 MT in 2018. The decline can be attributed to India’s imposition of restrictions into its market since June 2018.

If India maintains its restrictions, Moong exports will decrease and production will likely decline among local farmers.

Tanzania exported 83,649 MT of Tur last year, 3 percent lower than 85,865 MT exported in 2018.
