FRANKFURT. Monitoring of the oilseed sector with day-to-day price comparisons.

Sesame seed traders in India inintially seized the opportunity to nominally lift prices as crop damages and an increased buying interest in China were reported. This trend was, howver, short-lived as prices have now declined again. Black sesame seeds are, neverhteless, tradign nominally higher at USD 2.28/kg CIF Hamburg. Problem is that at 10,000 metric tonnes production ranges 50% lower than expected.

The spot market prices for blue poppy seeds currently range at EUR 2.65-2.70 per kg FCA Czech Republic. Speculative prices for the new crop range at USD 2.15-2.20 per kg Germany.
