NCDEX coriander sinks to 4.5-year low as imports up.

Futures contracts of coriander on the NCDEX extended losses and hit a four-and-a-half-year low of 4,745 rupees per 100 kg because of a rise in cheap imports from Ukraine, Bulgaria and Russia. The most-active June contract traded at 4,770 rupees per 100 kg, down 3.2% from the previous settlement. At Kota, the benchmark market for the commodity, the Badami variety was quoted at 5,900 rupees per 100 kg, while the Eagle variety was sold at 6,200-6,400 rupees, both unchanged from previous close. Arrivals in Rajasthan were unchanged at 4,700 bags (1bag=40kg).
