India’s role in the new global farmland grab

This report examines role of the Indian agricultural companies engaged in overseas agricultural land acquisitions in Africa, Asia and Latin America & the negative consequences of such a trend.

This report explores the role of Indian agricultural companies that have been involved in the recent trend in large-scale overseas acquisitions of farmland, criticised as “land grabbing”. While many international companies have traditionally grown cash crops abroad, and more recently crops for producing biofuels for global markets, this report is focused especially on the issue of Indian companies that invest in food production overseas.
