Arrival of imported tur in bulk and sluggish demand pounded tur in Indore mandis by Rs 100-Rs 150 a quintal with tur (Maharashtra) declining to Rs 4250 a quintal. Tur (Indore variety) also declined by Rs 100 to Rs 3100-Rs 3500 a quintal on poor buying support.

About a week back, tur (Maharashtra) on the back of higher demand and delayed monsoon had been ruling high at Rs 4500 a quintal but recent bout of monsoon rains and large arrival of imported tur have dragged down tur prices.

Sluggish demand and decline in buying support at the higher rate also dragged tur dal with its prices in the past one week declining by Rs 100 a quintal. In the spot, tur dal (full) ruled at Rs 6100-Rs 6200, tur dal (sawa no.) at Rs 5300-Rs 5400 a quintal.

Tur marka however remained unchanged at Rs 7000 a quintal On the other hand, moong and urad which are essentially raid-fed crops gained marginally higher on weak arrivals and delay in sowing of crops. Moong (best) quality ruled at Rs 4300-Rs 4500 a quintal, while moong (medium) ruled at Rs 3600-Rs 4000. Rise in spot moong also perked up its dal with moong dal being quoted at Rs 5300-Rs 5400 a quintal (Rs 5100-Rs 5200), moong dal (bold) at Rs 5900 (Rs 5750-Rs 5800), while moong mongar ruled at Rs 5500-Rs 5800 a quintal (Rs 5300-Rs 5600).

Similarly weak arrival and buying pressure also perked up urad with urad (best quality) being quoted Rs 3875-Rs 390o a quintal (up Rs 75), while urad (medium) ruled at Rs 2800-Rs 3250. Contrary to rise in urad, its declined on slack demand with urad dal (medium) being quoted at Rs 3900-Rs 4000 a quintal, urad dal (bold) at Rs 4700-Rs 4800, while urad mongar ruled at Rs 5500-Rs 5800 a quintal (Rs 5800-Rs 6200).
