Weak demand and decline in buying support at higher rate continued to drag pulse seeds and pulses’ prices in Indore mandis with masur (bold) today declining by ₹100 to ₹6,450 a quintal, while masur (Madhya Pradesh) declined to ₹6,100. Masur dal (medium) went for ₹7,300-7,500, while masur dal (bold) ruled at ₹7,600-7,700. Moong (bold) fetched ₹7,500-7,700 (down ₹100), while moong (medium) ruled at ₹7,000-7,300. Given arrival of new summer crop from next month, bullish trend in moong appears unlikely, said Sanjay Agrawal, a local pulse trader. Moong dal (medium) was at ₹8,900-9,100, moong dal (bold) ₹9,300-9,500, while moong mongar ruled at ₹9,600-10,100. Urad (bold) declined by ₹300 to ₹8,000-8,200, while urad (medium) declined to ₹7,300-7,500.
