Mumbai (Maharashtra) [India], October 28: Alternative investments have been making headlines in the past few years, primarily because they offer investors a chance to explore lucrative investment avenues uncorrelated to the stock market. Alternative investments, especially with Hedonova, give investors the opportunity to maximize their ROI, mitigate overall investment risk, and diversify their portfolio across multiple currencies and borders. One of the most promising sectors in alternative investments gaining prominence is agriculture. The agricultural industry offers investors a myriad of financial benefits provided they can map the intricacies of agricultural investing – fortunately, Hedonova can help investors make the most of this domain by helping them navigate the evolving sector consistently in real-time. This article explores the flourishing agricultural sector in India and lays a guideline for aspiring and seasoned investors.

Exploring the boom of agricultural sub-sectors 

India has always been agriculturally diverse, with variable climates, soils, and fertility levels depending on different regions – so there’s a hub of opportunities for investors. The three most popular agronomical sub-sectors include crop production, livestock farming, and agro-processing. In crop production, crops like wheat, rice, sugarcane, cotton, pulses, jute, and aromatic spices take the lead. In livestock farming, dairy and poultry production dominate most of the market, with the country leading the global industry in the same. Another upcoming sub-sector gaining attention in the recent past is agricultural processing. There is a rising demand for processed and semi-processed packaged foods and snacks, especially in urban India, making it a potentially profitable investment avenue. Hedonova helps investors understand the booming agricultural landscape in India and figure out which sub-sectors are ripe for yielding the highest return margins.

Navigating risk factors and challenges

Although India is a hotbed of agricultural investments, the agro-industry is not free from challenges. As diverse as Indian regions are, their yield often depends on the weather and climate conditions. While India’s climate is majorly mappable, with specific months earmarked for weathers ranging from tropical, cold, and monsoon extremes, there are periods of unpredictable weather patterns (like droughts, excess rainfall, floods, extreme heat) that can threaten crop production. Hedonova focuses on agronomical businesses that incorporate risk mitigation techniques into their production practices so that your returns remain unaffected. It tracks the government’s changing policies, subsidies, minimum support prices, and import-export regulations that can impact the agricultural sector to align your investment strategies with the evolving agricultural landscape. It helps investors make informed decisions in line with the external environment yet in accordance with their personal investment objectives. 

Monitoring policy changes and market conditions 

Apart from keeping an eye out for evolving governmental policies related to agriculture, investors need to stay informed about other factors that can impact their investments, in particular, market volatility. Historically, on a global average, agricultural investments have given a return of 26.3% in recent years. However, being a commodity, agricultural share prices can be volatile and, in turn, influence the profitability of crop production and trading. However, since agricultural investment has little to no correlation with the stock market, it has the potential to yield higher returns compared to other asset classes. Hedonova tackles market volatility through expertly-backed and well-researched diversification and risk management strategies. It identifies businesses that tackle the problems often plaguing the sector, like inadequate infrastructure, post-harvest loss, insufficient storage, and faulty transport conditions, among others. The company ensures its agricultural investment partners also adhere to proper quality control, hygiene, and employee and fair wage labour standards as part of its sustainability and ethical responsibility. 

Hedonova is committed to helping investors navigate the complex world of agricultural investments in India. The company expert advice and analysis enables investors to make informed decisions. Through in-depth research, constant monitoring of market trends, and a profound understanding of the nuances of Indian agriculture, Hedonova assists investors in identifying the most promising alternative investment opportunities.
