Thismay motivate the farmer to shift from oilseeds to other competing crops,"saidRajesh Agrawala, chairman of the Soybean Processors Association of India,or SOPA.On Tuesday, India's federal government cut the base price on which theimport duty of soy oil is calculated to $485 a metric ton from $565/ton.Generally, the base price of imported edible oil is cut or hiked by thegovernment to keep the base price as close as possible to the prevailinginternational price of that edible oil.The current international soy oil price is around $550/ton-$560/ton, sothere is "no rationale in reducing" the base price, Agrawala said.The federal government doesn't provide explanations for cuts or hikes inthe base price of any imported edible oil.
