Mumbai, February 29 (Commodities Control): Turmeric spot prices in major markets exhibited a mixed trend, with Hingoli and Duggirala experiencing an increase of Rs 400-500 per quintal, Basmatnagar witnessing a decline by Rs 100-300 per quintal, and other centers remaining relatively stable.

The market trends are influenced by the anticipation of lower output attributed to a significant reduction in acreage and yield. While both domestic and export inquiries are expected to enhance demand, increased arrivals are contributing to volatility in both futures and spot markets.

Total arrivals amounted to 34,000 bags, marking an increase of 12,200 bags from the previous session as more markets opened in Maharashtra. Nizamabad reported 12,000 bags, Erode 4,100 bags, Basmatnagari 5,000 bags, Sangli 9,000 bags, Hingoli 2,500 bags, and Nanded 1,000 bags. Despite the increase, arrivals were reported to be 30-40% lower than anticipated due to the significantly lower output.

Turmeric futures prices on NCDEX markets continued to rise, driven by bargain buying at lower levels. Prices recorded a 3.1% increase in April and a 2.4% rise in June contracts. The market is expected to remain volatile with a positive bias in the short term as new arrivals commence. Anticipated lower-than-usual arrivals are attributed to farmers and village-level aggregators stockpiling material ahead of anticipated higher prices later in the season.
