Jaipur barley up on local demand, negligible supply.

Prices of barley rose in Jaipur following improved demand from domestic stockists and the poultry feed sector. In Jaipur, the benchmark market, the coarse grain was sold for 1,620 rupees per 100 kg, up 10 rupees. Negligible supplies in the market also supported prices. Only 1-2 bags (1 bag = 85 kg) arrived in market due to low stocks with farmers. The new crop will only be available from March. However, talks of import of the grain from Argentina capped gains in prices.
