Prices of wheat and barley rose by up to Rs 25 per quintal at the wholesale grains market today due to increased offtake against restricted supplies from producing regions.
However, maize remained weak on sufficient stocks against subdued demand from consuming industries.
Traders said increased offtake by flour mills led to the rise in wheat prices.
They said pick up in demand from consuming industries helped barley prices to trade higher.
In the national capital, wheat dara (for mills) edged up by Rs 10 to Rs 1,600-1,605 per quintal. Atta chakki delivery followed suit and traded higher by Rs 5 to Rs 1,605-1,610 per 90 kg.
Other bold grains like barley gained Rs 25 to Rs 1,425-1,435 per quintal.
On the other hand, maize fell further by Rs 30 to Rs 1,470-1,480 per quintal.
