NEW DELHI, June 7 (Reuters) - Indian soybean and soyoil futures rose on Wednesday, after farmer strikes in India's top soybean-producing state of Madhya Pradesh raised fears of lower supply.
Farmers stepped up their agitation after six people were shot dead in clashes the previous day, forcing authorities to impose a curfew in some areas.
June soybean futures closed up 1.7 percent at 2,746 rupees ($42.66) on the National Commodities and Derivatives Exchange, while soyoil futures gained 0.5 percent to 629.70 rupees, as of 1248 GMT.
