Agriculture ministry set to control cotton seed prices....

Following news is relevant and important to the share holders of seed companies ,hence re-posting it here .



HYDERABAD: In what could prove a major setback to the global hybrid seed giant Monsanto, India's agriculture ministry has decided to control the prices of cotton seed, including the genetically modified versions and their trait value.

The Ministry of Agriculture, Cooperation and Farmers Welfare on 7 December has firmed up the Cotton Seeds Price (Control) Order 2015, terming it as aimed at ensuring availability of cotton seeds to farmers at "fair, reasonable and affordable prices".
The move of the ministry comes in response to a series of representations made by the domestic hybrid seed manufacturers, who sought the government's intervention to rein in the American seed giant Monsanto on trait value of Bt cotton seed. A Mahyco Monsanto Biotech (India) spokesperson said the company just received a copy of the order and was in the process of reviewing. "We will be in a position to comment only after we understand the order in its entirety," said the spokesperson.  ..
"As a leading player in India's agriculture sector, Monsanto remains confident that the government will take into account views of all stakeholders and will continue to encourage innovation in Indian agriculture." The local seed makers moved the agriculture ministry after the American hybrid seed giant Mahyco Monsanto Biotech (MMB) refused to bring down the royalty payments and return the excess royalties they paid from 2010.

The Indian hybrid seed producers appealed to Monsanto to reduce trait values weeks after certain state government began fixing caps both on royalty amounts the seed makers pay to obtain seed technologies and on selling prices of hybrid cotton seed to farmers. 

This decision may negatively impact the business prospects of previously suggested companies - Kaveri Seed Company  and  Nath Biogene - from this sector.

  21. Most of the inquiry on the company are either tips from other online blogs. Very few are studies done by asking members. Value Pick are sharing many fundamental analysis articles and if we all could note top 5-6 studies or analysis and do it before asking about VP opinion then it would be better. Many a times VP has to answer multiple times that he is not tracking. We are wasting his precious time (precious for me as he is source for ideas which I further analyse). When a stock falls then everybody wants to know the view of VP because they havent studied it. Even a 2 hr study of stock before buying and tracking quarterly results with reading each and every footnote will do a ton of benefit for individual confidence. We all are doing lot of profits from VP's conviction and confidence and believe me we will do more and more profit if we could increase our confidence and conviction with the study that VP has provided.

    1. Those who ask for tips are people who have no business being in the markets. They are simply gambling and unwilling to do their own due diligence. It wastes the time of this blog writer, and giving them tips only serves to further their incompetence and feed their gambling habit.

      Stock tips should only point in a very broad direction. We all must have our own trading plan.

    2. Perfectly said. I agree with all. Please allow time to VP sir rather than asking him about gambling stocks.

    1. Not tracking it .Generally , very cheap is not the only criteria for my stock selection .If a company perform well in one year and we check its fundamentals at that particular time we may feel it as very cheap but sustainability of performance is also an important factor.

    1. Satin Credit care mentioned around Rs.90 which is currently trading around Rs.378. One should buy stocks when there is opportunities to do so and not when there is money in our pocket . We should wait with patience for opportunities and utilise when the same available. .

  26. Dear VP Sir, so far you have posted 1008 messages in MMB. But we are able to view only one message now in MMB. Why Sir?

    Replies
    1. There is two reasons for that and only one I know . If my understanding is correct , they will move very old messages to archive which may not visible in normal course .

      But the second is the unfortunate one . I posted my detailed opinion about Websol few weeks back , but on a fine morning it disappeared without any trace. There was no violation of their code of conduct or any offensive language used in that but moderator removed it without any genuine reason .This is why I am reluctant to post any serious messages in MMB.

    2. True sir, but i dont understand one thing there are so many boarders writing crap and screraming every other company as buy openly still their all posts are intact and safe...and you followed every rule within compliance still paid price for being honest...why it's happening to us...even MMB moderator playing politics here ?? raises serious questions on him.
