Turmeric prices fell by 0.77 per cent to Rs 6,432 per quintal in futures trade Tuesday due to weak domestic demand against adequate supplies from producing belts.
At the National Commodity and Derivatives Exchange, the current month contract of the spice dropped by Rs 50, or 0.77 per cent, to Rs 6,432 per quintal with an open interest of 8,245 lots.
The spice contract for delivery in April next year, however, moved up by Rs 38, or 0.57 per cent, to Rs 6,738 per quintal, with an open interest of 12,975 lots.
Analysts said offloading of positions by speculators on weak domestic demand against adequate supplies from producing regions led to fall in turmeric prices in futures trade.
