According to a source from the market, the mustard crop is likely to arrive in the mandis by next month and the production is expected to be bumper. Because of the bountiful harvest of mustard, farmers are selling their remaining stock in the markets.
According to sources, low-cost foreign oils have put pressure on domestic oilseeds. Hence, they are forced to sell their produce at lower prices.
Farmers, who had previously earned a steeper price, do not want to sell their produce for a low price. Soybean and Binola farmers are not offering their produce at a discount. According to sources, soybean oilseed prices are stable, despite the demand for de-oiled cake (DOC). But as profit margins narrowed, soybean oil prices dropped too.
