Burma Lemon Tur:

Tur Lemon variety of Burma-origin declined Rs 125 to Rs 6,375/100Kg in Mumbai, due to slack mills’ buying despite less ready imported stock.

Similarly, domestic variety of Tur dropped by Rs 50-75 at Rs 6,950-7,000/100Kg at benchmark market of Akola amid thin participation by the millers despite decreasing domestic arrivals.

The demand in tur and tur dals was reported to be lukewarm.

Tur millers have their pipelines full, but without encouraging demand sign for dal is leading to stalemate in buying activity.

All India Dal Mills Association has approached the government seeking early imports of tur to stabilise prices. The crop is lower than the anticipated production due to excess rains.

As per market view, Tur prices are likely to get support at lower rates as fundamentals of Tur are strong due to lower yields, less balanced old procured stock with government and import halt.

Burma Urad:

Prices of Burma Urad FAQ variety widened losses by Rs 100-150 at Rs 7,300/100Kg in Mumbai, on dull mill purchase due to sluggish offtake in processed Urad.

Similarly, Burma Urad FAQ variety in Chennai fell by Rs 50 at Rs 7,300/100Kg. SQ variety also declined Rs 200 at Rs 7,900-7,950 as arrivals of new domestic Urad were witnessed at Krishna district of Andhra Pradesh. Pace of arrivals are likely to increase within 10 days and may continue for two months. Crop size is expected to be around 2 lakh tons along with some carry over stock. However, average quality was reported compared to Burma Urad SQ variety. Availability of new Urad at cheaper rates compared to SQ variety and regular supply of Urad gota at cheaper rates from Madhya Pradesh has pressurised sentiments. Moreover, buyers in Chennai are still holding around 1,500 containers (36,000 tons) of imported Urad.

The Indian government also announced quota of 4 Lakh tonnes for import of Urad for the period up to 31st March 2022.

However, overseas supplies are not expected soon due to strike in Burma. No local and overseas trade was reported as loading-offloading activity at port has been affected due to strike. Banking transactions and port operations are likely to resume in Myanmar within one week.

Maersk Myanmar of Maersk Line, the World’s largest container shipping Line Company, has issued a customer advisory regarding temporary suspension of activities during 8th-14th March 2021 citing critical situations in Myanmar.

Meanwhile, sellers in Urad were inactive at lower rates due to negligible overseas supply. However, ongoing arrivals of Urad at Krishna district, limited offtake in processed Urad during summer period and upcoming supply of summer crop from April-May in Madhya Pradesh and Gujarat are likely to keep prices under check.

Chana Kantewala (Indore):

Chana prices extended gains by Rs 100-150 at Rs 5,100-5,150/100Kg in Indore following firm cues futures and better mills’ purchase on immediate requirement for crushing.

Chana futures traded firm on the back of demand from dals and besan counters.

Higher spot Chana prices, but not so picky demand in dals has taken the parity for dal processing in negative zone.

More demand from dal counters is needed for millers to go aggressive on buying.

Unless we get back more demand from dals and besan market, we may not witness any further aggressive rise.

Nafed is most likely to discontinue auctions before 10th March. Procurement by government agency and corporate-stockiest buying likely to support price further.

Going forward, Chana futures are to find support towards Rs 4,850/ qtl and trade towards Rs 5,000-5,150 /Qtl by coming sessions.

Similarly, Tanzania-origin Chana in Mumbai ruled higher by Rs 200 at Rs 4,700/100Kg on better millers’ trade activity due to parity compared with domestic Chana-Kabuli Chickpea.

Similarly, Russia and Sudan-origin Kabuli Chickpea prices traded higher by Rs 200-300 each, at Rs 4,850-4,950/100Kg and Rs 4,500-4,800, respectively. Dollar variety Chana also moved up Rs 1,100 at Rs 7,000-7,900/100Kg in Indore.

Amidst declining arrivals and poor crop report because of inclement weather and damage to the crop, dollar chana in Indore mandi gained sharply. Besides weak arrivals, strong buying support from stockists and traders has also contributed to rally in dollar chana. However, the arrival of new dollar chana is yet to pick momentum in mandis.

Imported Masoor (Mumbai):

Canada crimson variety Masoor along with Australia Masoor in Mumbai declined by Rs 25-75 each at Rs 5,450-5,600/100Kg and Rs 5,675, respectively as millers refrained from purchasing at prevailing rates and ongoing domestic arrivals.

However, stock of imported Masoor has been depleting day by day. No further overseas supply are expected due to higher parity. Millers may shift to crush domestic Masoor in the coming days due to less imported stock.

Imported Masoor stock in Kolkata may likely be around 60,000-70,000 tons. Canada Masoor is expected to be around 50,000 ton and Australia origin at about 10,000 tons. Stocks in Mundra are around 110,000 MT, 30,000 MT at Kandla and 40,000 MT at Hazira port.

Stockiest were inactive at prevailing rates in domestic market. They may bounce back at lower range due to lesser domestic carry over stock.

White Pea (Kanpur):

Dal quality new White Pea prices widened losses for third straight week by Rs 500 at Rs 4,950/100Kg at Kanpur market, due to increased new arrivals.

As per Kanpur based trader, prices of White Pea is likely to get support at lower rates due to negligible carryover stock. Millers-traders will actively purchase as the pipeline is empty. Stockiest activity and bulk buying from big companies may be witnessed at lower rates in the coming days.

Moreover, imported White pea stock is also negligible after India banned import of the yellow peas. Customs department has not released the imported pulses yet, as the release will contradict government’s existing policy.
