Since fracking took off at the end of 2010 the price of guar, a bean of the Galactomannan family that can be used to thicken water in the drilling process, increased 15-fold to $25 (£15) a kilo this summer.

The massive price spike has proved a boon to Rajasthan's mostly hand-to-mouth guar farmers and convinced thousands of others to turn their land over to guar, which in Hindi means "cow's food" reflecting that until recently the vast majority was munched by bovines.

"It's a bit like sugar beet," says Malcolm Graham-Wood, an energy analyst at VSA Capital in London. "It was only really fed to animals, then someone found that you could put it into an oil well in Texas and it has rocketed [in price].

"You wouldn't expect to find it in fracking, and wouldn't expect it to be so important that half of US shale gas operations are going up [in cost] on the back of the shortage. But it is."

The oil industry was attracted to guar for its thickening properties that have long appealed to ice cream, yoghurt and toothpaste manufacturers.

Dennis Seisun, editor of the Quarterly Review of Food Hydrocolloids, substances that form a gel when added to water, explains that guar is used to thicken water to allow ceramic beads to be suspended in the liquid and injected into the ground at high pressure, which breaks up rocks allowing oil and gas to seep out.

"Now when they drill a hole they go sideways for a mile or two, and frack not once or twice but 10-15 times – that's what's led to the skyrocketing price," he says.

The US oil industry is expected to have bought 300,000 tonnes of Indian guar gum [which is made from grinding down the guar beans] this year – 75% of the country's total output. Demand was so strong over the summer that panic buying set in and prices were doubling week-by-week.

The price rise was so steep that giant US oilfield services company Halliburton was forced to issue a profit warning, cautioning investors that the rising cost of guar would hurt its profits because it had risen to represent 30% of its costs. Rival Baker Hughes also warned shareholders that the price was "horrific" and some wells were even forced to shutdown because they could not access enough guar.

The companies are so concerned about the volatile price, which has yo-yoed between $8-25 a kilo this year and currently stands at about $10 at auction, that they are moving resources into developing synthetic alternatives. Last month Halliburton's president of strategy and corporate development, Timothy Probert, moved to reassure analysts that the company had its alternative PermStim ready to go if guar prices reached the level they hit in the summer.

The high guar price is also affecting the food we eat because manufacturers have been priced out by oil groups. This year food companies are expected to account for just 20% of India's guar exports – a drop from near 100% less than five years ago.

"The food industry is beginning to realise just how good a deal they had for so long," Seisun says. "When prices were as low as $1 a kilo they were complaining when it went up by a few cents. Now it can double in a week."

The highest seed yield was recorded with RGM 112, which was on par with HG 563
and both were distinctly superior to RGC 1003.

Guargum Certified Seed, AP (Consulant)

Sowing of Guragum in Summer season (Jan-Feb) is best time as it gives excellent result in terms of yield/production and quality. In this season the risk is very low as irrigation is under control. Most importantly the yield which will be in the month of May, will get best price of the season.Farmers/Grower of this crop should avoid cold season (soil temp should not be less than 20 degree Celsius) as this crop is temp sensitive, germination and the growth is likely to be affected.

“Guargum” is a product which is made from Guar seeds. Guargum is being used in different industries in India and abroad, but now it is in Heavy demand due to its utility in Crude Oil Industry, these industries have saved 10 USD per barrel by using Gurgum. India is enjoying the top position in production and export of this product in the world market, 80 % of global demand is met by India. Guargum is the top most agri commodity which is exported last year.
Guar is basically Simple, Short & Easy rain fed (depends upon rains) crop and cultivated in Rajasthan & Haryana state, but it can be grown successfully in other states (Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka and Tamil Nadu) also.
We have taken Successful trials of this crop in Vidharbha region of Maharashtra state in rain fed and irrigated conditions in summer. Also have conducted trials in Madhya Pradesh, Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka and Tamil Nadu states in rain fed and irrigated conditions, the results were economically feasible.
Pacific Agro is having its presence in more than 7 states and working along with NABARD, ATMA (agri Dept.) and also interacting with Planning Commission, Govt. of India.
There is basically four different purpose variety-
1. Green Manuring- for soil fertility.
2. Fodder- for cattle feed.
3. Pod or vegetable – for use as vegetable, and
4. Gum variety- for making edible gum.
These seeds looks like same and difficult for differentiate for new farmer/grower.
So we recommend only Certified and packed seed for sowing to avoid losses or to be cheated.
Recommended Varieties- RGC 197 – Single stem, flat seed, 27 % Gum, RGC 936 – With branches, round and pink color seed, 33% Gum, RGC-986, 1012, HG- 563, 365 etc. Variety is to be selected with the help of experienced consultant.

2. Climate- High temp, full sun light and low rainfall.
3. Sowing – After 20 July to 15 Sep ( rain fed) & in February (with irrigation)
4. Crop duration- 85 to 120 days.

6. Cost of cultivation per acre – Rs. 7 to 8 thousand. Cost of Certified seed- Rs.3,000+ Fertiliser -1,500+ Spray -Rs.500 + Labour ? (as per local or individual)
7. Production/ Yield – 400 to 700 Kg. /acre. (4 to 7 quintal)

Dear Mr. Hanumanth Rao C (if I'm not wrong),
I'd like to ask you if you're still in this business. If so what is the present status of guar gum in India, with specific reference to AP and Telangana.
I'm from Hyderabad and if the prospects are good for the cultivation of this crop, I'd like to go for it. But my concern is about a good market for the produce.
If you know anyone who can buy my product, please refer them to me.
Thank you
