NAFED procures 12,859 metric tonne urad, 33,976 metric tonne Moong at MSP.

The National Agricultural Cooperative Marketing Federation of India had procured 12,859 metric tonne of urad and 33,976 metric tonne of moong sown during the kharif season across the country, said an official with the federation. Procurement of pulses from growers in Rajasthan, Telangana, Karnataka, and Maharashtra was underway at the minimum support price under the price support scheme. Higher arrivals of the fresh urad crop and low demand from millers had pushed prices below the minimum support price in many markets.
