Due to the anticipated decrease in kharif sowing land, turmeric prices increased

As the Kharif sowing acreage is anticipated to decline during the current season, turmeric prices yesterday increased by 5.85% to 9548.

Crop arrivals for the week ending June 10, 2023, were much lower than the previous week at 3,731.85 MT, a 55% decrease.

Support was also noted because the farmers in Andhra Pradesh suffered significant losses due to the late rains that destroyed their turmeric crops.

The nation had produced 11.0 mln tn of spices the year before. The Spices Board estimates that 1.33 million tonnes of turmeric were produced in 2014, an increase of 18.4%. The price finished at 8323.5 Rupees in Nizamabad, a significant spot market in AP, up 301.05 Rupees.

Technically, the market is experiencing new buying as open interest increased by 2.76% to settle at 15665 while prices increased by 528 rupees. Currently, turmeric is receiving support at 9044, and a move below that level could result in a test of 8542 levels.
