Similarly soya oil March contract on the NBOT also was Rs 3 lower at Rs 665.80. Compared to February, soya oil March contract saw the most trading on the NBOT. On the NCEDX too, soya oil February and March contracts was lower at Rs 650.55 and Rs 668.90 respectively

On the other hand, soya seeds saw a gain of Rs 10-15 in the mandis on weak arrival. In the State mandis, soyabean was quoted at Rs 2370-2400 a quintal on Thursday, while in the Indore mandis, it was quoted at Rs 2380-2405 a quintal. Arrival of soyabean in the State mandis continues to be low with just 1 lakh bags of soyabean arriving in various mandis of Madhya Pradesh, while in the Indore mandis, arrival was recorded at about 4,000 bags. Plant deliveries in soyabean also gained Rs 10 higher at Rs 2469-2480 a quintal, while port deliveries in soyabean on Thursday was quoted at Rs 2460 and purchased by Gokul Refinery's Ruchi plant.
