Prices of coriander, jeera rise as demand picks up


Coriander and jeera prices rose by Rs 100 per quintal in the national capital today largely supported by pick-up in demand from stockists and overseas enquiries amid restricted arrivals from growing regions.

Coriander prices rose by Rs 100 to settle at Rs 7,300-13,300 per quintal.

Jeera common and jeera best quality also increased by Rs 100 each to conclude at Rs 19,100-19,600 and Rs 22,100-22,600 per quintal.

Traders said apart from buying support from retailers and stockists, rising export demand, mainly pushed up coriander and jeera prices at the wholesale kirana market here.
