Turmeric and jeera prices fell by up to Rs 400 per quintal in the national capital today, largely influenced by weak local and export demand amid adequate stocks.

Turmeric prices fell by Rs 300 to settle at Rs 13,000-17,000 per quintal.

Jeera common and jeera best quality prices also declined to Rs 15,000-15,100 and Rs 17,000-17,500 against the previous closing of Rs 15,400-15,600 and Rs 17,100-17,900 per quintal, respectively.

Market analysts said reduced offtake by stockists and exporters at the existing levels mainly pulled down the turmeric and jeera prices on the wholesale kirana market here.
