New Delhi, Feb 21 (Commoditiescontrol): Mentha oil prices experienced a slight increase in both the spot market and futures on Wednesday, against a backdrop of subdued industrial demand. Reports indicate that the planting of the new mentha crop has commenced in key growing regions such as Barabanki, Rampur, Chandausi, and Sambhal in Uttar Pradesh.

Despite the initiation of new crop cultivation, market analysts suggest that the acreage for mentha may remain lower compared to the previous year. This is attributed to farmers facing challenges in obtaining remunerative prices, primarily due to a slowdown in demand from China, a major buyer of natural mentha oil from India. The prevailing economic conditions have resulted in reduced prices, impacting both local industry and exporters.

In the Chandausi market, mentha oil prices held firm at Rs 995 per kg, while in Barabanki, they were reported at Rs 972 per kg.

On the futures front, the benchmark contract of Mentha oil for February delivery traded Rs 2.1 higher at Rs 903.1 per kg on the Multi Commodity Exchange (MCX). The open interest stood at 520, with a trading volume of 114. Similarly, the March contract saw a Rs 1.5 increase, trading at Rs 915 per kg, with an open interest of 335 and a trading volume of 86.

Despite the marginal uptick, the overall sentiment remains cautious due to weak industrial demand and the anticipation of challenges in achieving last year's acreage levels.
