For HML, has been a period of struggle. While Tea prices were going up In the rest of the world, South India was the only geography In the world where Tea prices actually came down.
In Rubber also, while price realization was good, production was not satisfactory, mainly due to excess rains during the peak cropping period. Indian agriculture is witnessing a new problem of non-availability of workers and steep increase in wages. Wages continued to spiral up, while production, productivity and prices lagged behind.
There was an overall increase in the prices of agricultural produce leading to increase in food inflation, but it has still not been able to cover the increase in costs. Government''s monetary and fiscal measures to control inflation have made borrowing more costly, affecting investment and growth.
This was unlike the global trend where prices went up. Poor demand for lesser-quality tea also led to a fall in prices. However, there was a good market for high-quality tea, which resulted in higher price realization. From January onwards, tea prices started improving in South India.
This trend is expected to continue during the current year as well. Also, there was a drop in productivity on account of adverse weather and old age of its Tea bushes. HML has been focusing on the developmental work in its plantations and would continue to undertake uprooting and replanting of its gardens in a major way for the next few years.
This rejuvenation is essential for improving its land productivity in future. During FY approximately 35 lakh plants were used for Infilling and Replanting in our tea gardens. Factory manufacturing efficiencies and factory capacity utilization were improved by enhancing bought-leaf intake. HML tea factories were upgraded, reducing manufacturing cost and improving quality. HMLs auctions sale average was comparable to the South Indian average.
In natural rubber, mainly due to higher consumption from the Tyre industry, demand was good and was mostly ahead of increase in supplies. Prices fluctuated during most part of the year. They varied from a level of about Rs per Kg to about Rs per Kg and settled mostly in the range of about Rs per Kg.
Of late, Natural Rubber prices have come down slightly to about Rs. They are expected to remain range-bound and should follow the development in automobile sector. During FY HML continued with its major drive towards replanting and undertook a large area for rubber replantation. We are in the closing phase of completing the accelerated replanting, as FY is expected to be the last of the increased replanting years.
From FY we shall be back to normal annual replanting of about The benefits of accelerated replanting should be visible from FY onwards. We expect a substantial jump in production and productivity from FY onwards. That is currently in the developmental phase. We continue to invest in this Division by undertaking increased planting of Pineapple, Fuel crops, Pepper, Cardamom and Cocoa either as intercrop or main crop wherever possible. In another years, FSO should start contributing to the profitability of the company and become a strong factor in stabilizing the bottom line.
Your Company continues to focus on Recruitment and Training of fresh managerial talent to ensure quality and continuity of the Management team. We already have a strong group in place to manage future growth. I am confident, profitability will improve substantially from next year. While market forces would dictate commodity prices, improved efficiency and higher land and labour productivity should contribute significantly to the growth in Profits..
I wish to acknowledge and appreciate the commitment and contribution of the HML team in making our Company stronger and taking it to greater heights. Sanjiv Goenka Chairman. Harrisons Malayalam Ltd. Popular Categories Markets Live!

Kerala student wins praise for flawlessly translating Rahul Gandhi’s speech
A class 11 student earned praise from Congress MP Rahul Gandhi during his visit to Wayanad for flawlessly translating his English speech into Malayalam. Fathima Safa, a year-old student at the Government Higher Secondary School in Karuvarkkundu at Wadoor, stepped forward when Gandhi sought help from the audience. He was addressing a group of students after inaugurating a new science block in the school on Thursday. During his previous visits to Kerala, Gandhi faced problems when his translators failed to articulate his speeches. Ahead of the Lok Sabha elections, things did not go as planned at one such public rally in Kerala. Veteran Congress leader PJ Kurien, who was translating the speech, struggled to grasp what Gandhi was saying and kept asking him to repeat his lines.

He called for determined, but passive resistance that signified the certitude that Gandhi foresaw for the movement, best described by his call to Do or Die. However, almost the entire Congress leadership, and not merely at the national level, was put into confinement less than twenty-four hours after Gandhi's speech, and the greater number of the Congress leaders were to spend the rest of the war in jail. Gandhi made this speech to help India gain Independence. Before you discuss the resolution, let me place before you one or two things, I want you to understand two things very clearly and to consider them from the same point of view from which I am placing them before you. I ask you to consider it from my point of view, because if you approve of it, you will be enjoined to carry out all I say.
