Wheat prices rise in Indore, Rajkot as govt buys start.

Wheat prices rose in key wholesale markets of Madhya Pradesh and Gujarat as procurement by the government started and supplies in the market were low. Centre has asked Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat and Rajasthan to start procurement operations earlier than the usual date of April1 due to high supplies and weak prices. Govt purchases prices rise above the MSP in most of these markets. About 3,000-4,000 bags (1bag=100kg) arrived in the market down from 5,000-6,000 bags.
