India Soybean ends down 1% on improved weather, CPO up.

Futures contracts of all the components of the edible oil basket, barring soybean, traded higher on domestic exchanges. Soybean futures on the National Commodity and Derivatives Exchange closed about 1% down due to improve in weather conditions in key growing areas of Madhya Pradesh and Maharashtra, the top growers. Recent rains and forecast of more showers in coming days after rounds of dry spells in major growing areas boosted hopes of recovery in yields. Higher arrivals of the oilseed in Madhya Pradesh also weighed on the sentiment.
