The sale of turmeric decreased on Friday at the spot markets in Erode.

“2,600 and odd bags arrived for sale and the traders purchased 1,350 bags for their local demand. Some negligible quantity of finger turmeric increased by ₹250 a quintal at the Regulated Marketing Committee and in other markets the price of the commodity did not increase. Such increase is due to the quality,” said RKV Ravishankar, President, Erode Turmeric Merchants Association.
