NCDEX mustard seed up on concern over lower acreage

The November contract of mustard seed on NCDEX rose because of concern about lower area under the oilseed this rabi season. On NCDEX, the most-active November contract was up 24 rupees from previous close. Government has approved a 200-rupee per 100 kg hike in the minimum support price of mustard to 3,900 rupees per 100 kg. This created positive sentiments. However, gains are seen capped due to higher supply.
