Coriander and jeera prices rose by Rs 100 per quintal in the national capital today largely on the back of pick up in demand from stockists and overseas enquiries amid restricted arrivals from growing regions.
Coriander prices rose by Rs 100 to settle at Rs 5,900- 11,900 per quintal.
Jeera common and jeera best quality also increased by Rs 100 each to conclude at Rs 19,200-19,300 and Rs 21,700-22,200 per quintal.
Traders said apart from buying support from retailers and stockists, rising export demand, mainly pushed up coriander and jeera prices at the wholesale kirana market.
