india Tur set to hit 6-year low as Africa crop may worsen glut.

A sharp rise in supply from overseas–largely Myanmar and some African countries like Malawi, Mozambique and Tanzania–is seen pulling down the already-low prices in a couple of months, to levels last seen in 2011. Africa tur production is expected to jump to 450,000-500,000 tonne in 2017-18, from the 350,000 tonne crop of last year. 70-80% of the African output making its way to India in the absence of other destinations. A record domestic crop, pegged around 4.5 million tonne or almost double of last year crop compounds the supply glut. Tur prices falling further, maybe towards 3,000 rupees per 100 kg in the next two months.
