Pepper price expected to go down next year

In the past few months, pepper prices have remained firm due to supply-demand fundamentals. As estimates for this year and next year indicate higher production, sluggishness is expected in the spice in the coming months. The production was about 70,000 metric tons during 2002-03 and this has declined to 45,000 MT. In Kerala, the pepper farmers face shortage of employees for both planting and to take the yield, affected badly in production. Meantime, Karnataka has recorded a growth in pepper production. Previous year Karnataka recorded a production of 22,000MT and it's expected a higher production in the coming year. The increased total volume in India along with global production would force a lower price next year.
