Mustard seed

at the benchmark Jaipur market is trading at Rs 6,160 per quintal. For the week ahead, the price is expected to head towards Rs 6,200 – 6,250 per quintal. Restricted selling from government agencies and low availability in the free market is expected to keep the price higher.


Benchmark S6 (29mm) in Gujarat is quoting around Rs 19,100 per bale. Record opening stocks, improved arrivals, and correction in global will result in the price coming down from the levels that are unexpectedly higher due to the crop damage reports. Expect the price to decline to Rs 18,500 or lower in the next couple of weeks
