PULSES WEAKENING

Tariff impacting our local farmers’ India trade

This change hit Australia’s two most important pulse crops right in the middle of harvest, when export trade for the season was starting.

Pulse Australia believes there were already 200,000 tonnes, worth $150million, of Australian chickpeas and lentils in transit to India at the time, and these may be affected.
