India’s olive experiment take off in Rajasthan this week

Can India become a major producer and exporter of olive oil?
50,000 sapling of various varieties will be planted near Jaipur to find the Variety most suitable to India.

By Siddhartha Sarma,

olives cropThe agriculture board of a desert state, a micro-irrigation firm, and an Israeli company think so. Later this week, 50,000 olive saplings of various varieties will be planted near Jaipur in Rajasthan, part of a field test to check whether this belief translates into reality.

After all, olive trees do not grow in India.

If the Jaipur experiment succeeds, the variety most adaptable to Indian conditions will be selected in June. And one million olive saplings of this variety will be sold to farmers in areas around the city by Rajasthan Olive Cultivation Ltd, a company in which the three partners behind the effort— Rajasthan State Agriculture Board, Plastro Plasson of Pune and Indolive Ltd—have equal stakes.

Plastro Plasson Industries (India) Ltd is a joint venture between India and Israel in the area of micro-irrigation between Finolex Ltd of India and two Israeli companies, Plastro and Plasson. Indolive is an Israeli firm, partly funded by the government of that country, that promotes agricultural techniques.

“A project such as this, where a new kind of tree is being introduced in a water-scarce environment, hinges on the irrigation system used. So the olive project is as much about drip irrigation as it is about transforming Rajasthan into a major olive grower,” said Lior Weintraub, a spokesman for the Israel embassy here.

“The main reason the project was considered for Rajasthan was the similarities in climate and cultivation problems in the state and Israel. However, there are major differences in soil and other factors which will have to be addressed,” he added.

A general agreement to promote olive cultivation was signed by Israel and the Rajasthan government in November 2006. The two governments took a year to finalize the details of this initiative and a joint venture agreement was signed in November 2007.

“The results (of the field tests) will show which variety adapts itself best to Rajasthan’s climate and soil, after which more of the saplings will be brought. A total of 120,000 saplings will be placed at various nurseries in the first phase,” said Mika Harari of Indolive, a company which has successfully cultivated olives in southern Israel.

The trials will be carried out on 250ha, said Rajasthan State Agriculture Marketing Board, or RSAMB. The plants will be irrigated by the very latest in drip irrigation techniques, the method of direct injection in which the roots are directly watered and nutrients added simultaneously.

“This saves 40% more water than older drip irrigation methods,” Weintraub said. He claimed that this method, called “drip-ferti” irrigation, was behind the production of 2.8 tonnes of olive oil per ha in Israel, a productivity rate that the project’s overseers hope to duplicate in Rajasthan.

Meanwhile, the Rajasthan government is seeking to woo farmers to try out olives.
“The farmers are being made aware of the market for olive oil, both domestic and export. The irrigation systems might be provided at a lower rate so that small farmers are also able to access it,” said RSAMB chairman Vipin Kumar Sharma.

Olive oil is a healthy alternative to other edible oils and the market for it around the world continues to grow. It is currently priced at around Rs800 per litre compared with groundnut oil, another popular cooking medium which is priced at Rs53-55 per litre. Around 3.2 million tonnes of olive oil is manufactured worldwide.

  6. Gurudeep Ramakrishna Says:

    Dear Mr. Siddhartha,

    It was interesting read your above article. I am into Organic Community based Farming. I have recently started this initiative with fellow villagers about 150 kms from Bangalore. The idea cropped to my mind when I inherited a small pocket of land and began growing things there mostly for the family back in Bangalore. I now mentor fellow villagers and help them with agricultural initiatives. Most of my help is in the form of educating them about best practices in farming, newer crops for farming etc…. Although not a farmer myself I believe in healthy living. I would appreciate if you could share with me some information of Olive varities, the initiative in Rajastan( may be a write-up which I can translate for them) and the weather conditions required to grow them. Also any information on whom to contact will help some of these farmers take newer initiatives down here in the south.

    Look forward to hear from you.

    Best Regards,
    Gurudeep Ramakrishna

  39. Youhan Says:

    Hi There,
    Having lived in California for many years and having seen the Hardy Olive tree grow there so well, it only makes sense that the Olive Tree should be able to thrive in our Country as well.

    We are located in Maharashtra and are very interested in Olive Farming. I understand that there is a Tri-Venture between an Israeli and Puna Based Firm along with the Rajashthan Govt and was wondering if the plants planted so far are doing well and if there is a chance for similar type of Saplings to be grown in Maharashtra, along the Puna, Nasik belt? I think that if a few of us were to get together and approach either the State Govt or maybe even an Israeli firm then we have a better shot of getting things going in Maharashtra.

    So if anyone is interested in forming an organization or Body or at the very least a support and Information Group to promote Olive Farming in Maharashtra or India for that matter, please do get in touch with me and we can share Ideas and action plans to get things going. I can be reached on my cell number 08007128887.

    It is pleasure to know about the future of olives in India. This way the desert which is left idle can get utilised to contribute to the economy of the country.
    We as a company are going to acquire a lot of land say 100acres or more and further to invest Rs 20 million. This we were planning to cultivate Jafrota and/or Amla etc.plus dairy farming and to do other related activities. If you feel that there is such a great possibility for olives, we would also like to contribute in the revolution.
    If you please provide us with the more information about olives plantation and its economies, we can transfer a good amount towards this project.

    Dear Sir/Madam:
    I have 20 acres of land in central UP. Beside mango groves we cultivate rice, wheat, sugar cane & other crops. I am now thinking to diversify our cultivation methods. I plan to start a green house to cultivate vegetables. Recently, I came across news about olive cultivation in Gujarat, the government there unlike UP is negotiating with an Israeli firm to help Guajarati farmers grow olive trees. I would be interested to find out if there are organizations that have the knowhow & expertise in this area.
