A year has passed since the prices of food prices remained in the sky and there is a fear that they will not come down for the time being. At the moment prices are back in a bullish phase pulses And the prices have increased by 15 percent in the last 6 weeks. If market experts are to be believed, limited availability of pulses in stock and fall in area under sowing of pulses during monsoon, while heavy rains at some places have led to the possibility of further reduction in supply due to impact on the crop, leading to a rise in prices.

Where did the price of pulses reach?

According to an ET report, the ex-mill price of tur in Maharashtra has increased from Rs 97 per kg to Rs 115 per kg in the last 6 weeks. Along with this, the prices of urad are also seeing a rise. In fact, due to heavy rains in the crop areas, there has been a loss on the yield. However, market experts are of the view that urad prices will not rise much as imports from Myanmar may increase. On the other hand, the crop remains better in the major urad producing states of Madhya Pradesh and Uttar Pradesh. That is, the supply may increase over time. But a rise in the prices of tur is possible as its stock is limited and this year farmers have given preference to soybean instead of tur. However, at present, there is no pressure on the prices of gram, moong and mansoor. According to experts, if the prices of tur remain high, then the consumption of other pulses will increase and this may affect their prices as well.
