Jaipur barley prices up on low supply, high demand.

Prices of barley rose in Jaipur for the second consecutive day because of lower arrivals and rising demand from Stuckists, feed sector and the malt industry. The grain was quoted up 10 rupees from previous close in the key market of Jaipur. Arrivals of the new crop of barley were pegged at 70,000 bags (1bag=85kg), compared with 90,000 bags on previous close. Supplies are lower because farmers are holding their produce as they expect prices to rise in the coming days.
