NCDEX coriander up 1% as stocks fall in warehouses.

Futures contracts of coriander rose nearly 1% on NCDEX due to a decline in inventory of the spice in exchange-accredited warehouses. The most-active November contract was up 0.7% from the previous close. In the NCDEX-monitored warehouses, stocks of coriander stood at 7,935 tonne down from 8,463 tonne previous day. Further, concerns over a fall in area under the spice in the upcoming sowing season also supported prices. Current low prices and likely low soil moisture content due to poor rainfall in Gujarat, Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh in the past few weeks are seen leading to lower sowing of coriander this year.
