Cumin

Export demand for Indian cumin has increased as other growing countries such as Afghanistan, Syria and Iran have hardly any goods left in their warehouses and prices in India are relatively low. Market players also expect buying interest from China to increase in the coming weeks. A crop of 35,000 to 40,000 mt is expected there, but consumption is at 75,000 to 90,000 mt. Meanwhile, sowing has started in Syria and yields are expected to be high due to favourable weather conditions, while the crop is expected to be lower in Afghanistan and Iran due to low rainfa
