Amid profit-booking by speculators, mustardseed prices fell by Rs 16 to Rs 3,875 per quintal in futures trading today. Besides, a weak trend at the spot markets on muted demand weighed on prices. Marketmen said profit-booking by participants at current levels and a weak trend at the spot markets mainly pulled down mustardseed prices at futures trade.
