NEW DELHI. Indian exporters achieved great success in the last sesame seed tender. However, the prospects for the summer crop are clouded as there are expected delays in the main growing areas due to drought.

India wins 70% of the tender

As Indian exporters had hoped, they have won a significant portion of the South Korean sesame seed tender for the first time in a while. According to their own statements, this is because they are currently at an advantage due to some logistical problems and can also offer cheaper prices. Indian exporters will be able to deliver a total of 4,200 mt of sesame seeds at prices of USD 2,049-2,140/mt to South Korea in the next few weeks; the remaining positions are distributed between Nigeria (1,200 mt), Togo (300 mt) and Burkina Faso (300 m
