MUMBAI (Commoditiescontrol) – Urad, White Pea and Green Pea slipped during the week ended Saturday ( Dec 30,2019 - Jan 04,2020) due to sluggish trade activity at prevailing rates.

# Govt To Review Existing Free Trade Agreements, Says Piyush Goyal.

Burma Lemon Tur:

Tur Lemon variety of Burma-origin ruled steady at Rs 5,050/100Kg in Mumbai amid limited millers trade activity as dullness was observed at demand and sale counters in Tur dal and ongoing new domestic arrivals.

Similarly, domestic Tur in bilty trade at Akola also traded almost flat at Rs 5,400-5,425/100Kg.

However, millers preferred imported Tur/old domestic Tur over new one, due to high moisture content, to meet their crushing requirements.

Untimely rains and hailstorm in last couple of days are likely to delay the arrivals of kharif Tur in Vidarbha (Maharashtra), Karnataka and Madhya Pradesh. Quality and yield are likely to be affected, as well. The extent of damage to tur crop might increase because of fungal infection.

As per Gulbarga based trader, stock of old Tur was still reported with local millers/traders and they were not interested to purchase new Tur due to higher moisture around 16-17 percent. They will active in purchasing new Tur for stock by replacing old stock at premium prices after arrivals of new Tur get less moisture content.

Millers have restarted crushing operations of new Tur. This is likely to be delivered in the market from 1st week of January.

Latur origin old Phatka variety traded unchanged at Rs 7,900-8,100/100Kg for spot.

As per trade sources, Tur prices likely to get support once arrivals of new Tur gather the pace with less moisture content quality in domestic market. Government will also procure as prices of Tur are trading below MSP.

Burma Urad:

Burma Urad FAQ new/old variety fell by Rs 150-175 each to Rs 7,100/100Kg and Rs 6,950, respectively at the Mumbai market as Millers refrained from buying at prevailing rates amid liquidity crunch, ongoing domestic arrivals and slower offtake in processed Urad.
