Mustard seed futures prices dropped by Rs 24 to Rs 3,012 per quintal in futures trading today on offloading of bets by participants, tracking a weak trend at the spot markets.
Marketmen said trimming of positions by participants, taking weak cues from the spot markets on muted demand against persistent supplies from growing belts, led to the fall in mustard seed prices.
