Peas prices weakened by Rs 50 per quintal in an otherwise steady wholesale pulses market on Saturday on slackened demand.

However, other pulses moved in a narrow range in scattered deals and settled around previous levels.

Marketmen said slackened demand mainly led to a decline in peas prices. In the national capital, peas white declined by Rs 50 to Rs 3,000-3,050, while peas green held steady at Rs 3,150-3,200 per quintal, respectively.

The following are today’s pulses rates per quintal: Urad 3,850-4,550, Urad Chilka (local) 4,700-5,000, best 5,150-5,650, Dhoya 5,700-5,800, Moong 5,000-5,800, Dal Moong Chilka local 5,450-5,850, Moong Dhoya local 5,950-6,050 and best quality 6,650-6,750.
