Turmeric, jeera rise on pick up in demand
Turmeric and jeera prices rose by Rs 100 per quintal at the wholesale kirana market in the national capital today largely on the back of a pick up in demand from retailers as well as export enquiries amid restricted arrivals from growing regions.
Turmeric prices rose by Rs 100 to settle at Rs 8,900- 12,000 per quintal.
Jeera common and jeera best quality also increased by Rs 100 each to conclude at Rs 19,800-20,000 and Rs 21,700-22,000 per quintal.
Traders said apart from buying support from retailers and stockists, rising export demand mainly pushed up turmeric and jeera prices.
