While farmers who submit opium above the MQY are paid a premium, sales made on the illicit market often have a higher profit margin than sales made to the CBN.
The MQY is established yearly by the Central Bureau of Narcotics (CBN) prior to licensing.
Increasing the annual MQY has proven effective in increasing average yields, while deterring diversion, since, if the MQY is too low, farmers could clandestinely divert excess opium they produce into illicit channels, where traffickers often pay up to ten times what the GOI can offer.
