India Spot maize a tad lower.

Prices of maize in Purnea, a key market in Bihar, eased by around 4 rupees from previous close to 1,321 rupees per 100 kg amid steady arrivals of around 2,000 tn. Spot price of the coarse grain eased after rising in the last few sessions on the back of good demand from poultry and starch sector. Expectation of higher maize production in Karnataka, a key growing state, weighed on prices. Karnataka has pegged its maize output for 2018-19 (Jul-Jun) at 3.53 mln tn, up 26% on year.
