Barley down in Jaipur on supply surge on weak demand

Prices of barley fell in Jaipur because of a surge in arrivals and less demand from feed sector and stockists. Arrivals of the new crop were estimated at 15,000 bags (1bag=85kg) compared with 5,000 bags. Demand from malt industries was less due to high moisture content in the new arrivals, which weighed on barley prices. On the NCDEX the most-active April contract of barley was down 0.5%.
