Lower supplies lift barley to 1-week high in Jaipur.

Barley prices hit a one-week high in Jaipur due to lower arrivals and rise in demand from malt industries. Arrivals of the new crop were estimated at 5,000 bags (1bag=85kg) compared with 8,000 bags. Strong demand from stockists and feed sector also supported barley prices. Supplies are lower because farmers are holding their produce in the expectation of prices to rise in the coming days.
