Barley down in Jaipur on low demand post 2-month high.

Prices of barley were down in Jaipur as demand from stockists was subdued after prices hit a two-month high of 1,610 rupees per 100 kg. In Jaipur, the benchmark market, the coarse grain was sold for 1,590 rupees per 100 kg, down 20 rupees. Concerns over quality of the stock restricted demand from the malt industry, which further weighed on prices. However, negligible supplies in the market and demand from the poultry feed sector cushioned the fall in prices.
