Pepper futures prices rose by 0.28 per cent to Rs 23,600 a quintal today after traders created speculative position, driven by estimates of lower output and tight supplies in the spot market.

Marketmen attributed the rise in prices to hopes of lower output but sluggish exports capped the gains.

Similarly, the spice for delivery in April gained Rs 64, or 0.27 per cent, to Rs 23,801 a quintal, with a trade volume of 1,746 lots.
