Arrivals of fresh crop soybean begin in Madhya Pradesh.

Muhurat of fresh soybean was held at Indore mandi. Quality of seed is satisfactory but size of the seed is small. Moisture content in the new crop is 20-25% while the ideal level is 10-12%. Condition of the standing crop is improving because of recent rains. However dry spells during prime pod filling period hit the growth of the plant and size of the seed. Arrival of fresh crop has also been reported in Mandsaur, Neemuch, Dhar, Jaura, Mahu, and Khandwa mandis this week.
