NAFED buys 25,568 metric tonne groundnuts in shell.

The National Agricultural Cooperative Marketing Federation of India has procured 25,568 metric tonne of groundnut-in-shell in Gujarat and Rajasthan under the price support scheme. The procurement drive, which started late last month, is underway in eight procurement centres in Rajasthan and over 110 centres in Gujarat. NAFED started procuring the crop from growers as market prices fell below the minimum support price of 4,450 rupees per 100 kg, inclusive of a bonus of 200 rupees.
