Indore soybean prices a tad up on low acreage

Soybean prices rose marginally in the benchmark market of Indore in Madhya Pradesh due to slow progress of sowing in the state. Poor rainfall in the state so far in the southwest monsoon season has hit sowing operations and pulled down the area sown under soybean. Area under soybean has also declined as some farmers in the state have switched to cotton for better returns.
