Soyabean and groundnut oil prices flared up again in Vidarbha region of Western Maharashtra on renewed demand from local traders amid short supply from local crushing plants. Notable rise in international edible oil, fresh hike in Madhya Pradesh oil and reported demand from North-based traders also helped to push up prices. Good demand from South-based traders also boosted prices, sources said Wednesday. * * * * VIDARBHA MARKETS OILS * Cottonseed, sunflower refined, rapeseed, linseed, castor and coconut KP oils reported static in sluggish trading activity. * Traders expect further rise in groundnut oil in Vidarbha as supply reported poor. SOYMEAL * Prices today recovered marginally on increased demand from South-based traders amid weak supply from crushing plants. SOYABEAN * Soyabean prices in early trading activity in the Nagpur Agriculture Produce and Marketing Committee (APMC) after touching to a record high today opened on weak note on lack of demand from local crushing plants amid high moisture content arrival. Sharp fall in Madhya Pradesh soyabean prices and release of stock from stockists also pulled down prices. * Nearly 10,000 bags reported for auction in major soyabean mandis in Vidarbha, according to sources.
