Nagpur, Jan 29 (Reuters) - Barring a fall in soyabean oil, major edible oil prices today generally ruled flat in the Vidarbha region of Western Maharashtra in the absence of any worthwhile trading activity. Slackness in demand from millers and retailers against adequate stocks mainly pulled soyabean oil prices down. Fresh fall on NCDEX, downward trend in Madhya Pradesh soyabean oil and easy condition in American soya digam prices also affected sentiment, sources said Tuesday. * * * * VIDARBHA MARKETS OILS * Cottonseed, groundnut loose, groundnut refined, sunflower refined, linseed, rapeseed, castor and coconut KP oil prices ruled steady in sluggish trading activity. * Traders expect downward trend in soyabean oil here. SOYMEAL * Prices today showed weak tendency here in absence of buyers amid short supply from crushing plants. No trader was in mood for any commitment because of two dollar per tonne hike in American soymeal prices. SOYABEAN * New soyabean prices in the Nagpur Agriculture Produce and Marketing Committee (APMC) firmed up again on good buying support from local crushing plants amid weak supply from producing belts. Notable rise on NCDEX, upward trend in Madhya Pradesh soyabean prices and reported demand from South-based crushing plants also said to be the reasons for recovering soyabean prices. * About 20,000 soyabean bags reported for auctions in all over Vidarbha, according to sources.
